The UK’s Pathway to Net-Zero: where do local authorities come in?

event on
11 November
2019

Want to know more about how the UK gets on the pathway to net-zero? What needs to change to avoid runaway climate change? Who needs to act? And where do local authorities come in?

In this info-exchange and discussion evening, Mike Childs, Head of Science, Policy and Research at Friends of the Earth (FoE) will outline the UK’s pathway for achieving net-zero greenhouse emissions – exploring what will need to happen to transport, power, buildings, land-use, industry, waste, shipping and aviation to get us there.

The role of local authorities in achieving this will also be explored, with a look at FoE’s recent climate-friendly local authority area analysis – which reveals exactly how each area is performing on emissions.

And together we’ll discuss how you can engage your council and convince them to adopt an ambitious Climate Action Plan, and other actions you can take in your local community.

Manchester Friends of the Earth members will be on-hand to discuss the Greater Manchester context and the city-region’s commitment to achieve net-zero by 2038.

Refreshments (tea/coffee) available.  Building is accessible with lift access to 2nd Floor meeting rooms and accessible toilets.

All welcome.
