Home » Past webinars » Zero carbon counties: a conversation

Explore how we can bring people together at a county level to take action on the climate and biodiversity emergency. In this webinar experienced community organisers discussed how.

Recorded 2 March 2021 during a one-hour interactive Zero Carbon Britain-themed webinar.

Organising for action at county scale

Coordinated local action on the climate and biodiversity emergency is vital to progress at the speed and scale necessary. Drawing on the diverse knowledge, experience and perspectives available across a region can help to build a transition to net zero which fits the local context. 

This webinar brings people in similar situations but with different experience together in conversation, to help ensure the right questions are asked and useful detours are taken. The audience has the chance to discuss what they heard and pose questions to those in the conversation to draw out more details. The focus of the conversation is the practicalities of how things have been done and can be replicated.

In conversation are Sue Burnell (Shropshire Climate Action Partnership), Mark Chivers (Zero Carbon Dorset), Alison Stuart (Aberdeen Climate Action) and Kevin Frea (Lancaster City Council).
