On 30 September CAT is co-organising a free online conference, ‘From Inspiration to Practice: Delivering Net Zero through Local Government’, showcasing the most ambitious and transformative zero carbon local authority led projects from across the UK and Europe.
Driving the transition
The conference aims to demonstrate how local action can help support and drive the transition to net zero, and share inspiration, tools, practical advice and resources for others to develop similar projects.
Workshop sessions and panel discussions will include those behind a range of successful projects, and cover topics from transport, energy, housing and land use to greener economies, waste, community involvement and partnership development.
Each session will focus on five principles: advice for replicating projects; how to get people on board; funding considerations; local economic co-benefits; and resource sharing.
CAT is organising the conference in partnership with Aberdeen Climate Action, Ashden and Climate Emergency UK, with support from Paths for All, Aberdeen City Council, First Bus, and the Collective for Climate Action.
Anthony Hurford, CAT’s Zero Carbon Britain Hub Project Manager said:
“We’ve discovered so many inspiring projects out there creating real change in local authorities and communities. We’re excited to be able to invite some of these contacts to speak at the conference and inspire others, as well as sharing our ongoing work in the Zero Carbon Britain Hub and Innovation Lab.”
The event is focused on local and central government roles but is open to anyone interested in driving forward change to net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
