Hear from high-level stakeholders with a stake in net zero from government, international organisations, the investment community, business, academia, media, and NGOs to officially launch the UK Cities Climate Investment Commission (UK CCIC) and present early-stage findings of ‘The Estimated Net Zero Investment Need for the UK’s Cities’ report.
Join us in our City leaders Dialogue Series as Prof Greg Clark CBE, Chairman of Connected Places Catapult has a fireside chat with Mayor Rees, Bristol City Council, who will be showcasing best practices from Bristol that are leading the way in a Resilient and Green recovery following the city’s pledge to be a carbon neutral and climate resilient city by 2030.
Cities are key to ensure the world builds back better after the Covid 19 shock. Aiming at better understanding how cities around the world are implementing innovative measures to ensure a sustainable and just future, UK’s Connected Places Catapult has partnered with Singapore’s Centre for Liveable Cities to deliver a series of dialogues with city leaders between now and COP26 in Glasgow in November.
In this net zero webinar we will ask some important questions: What can we learn from past experience to help ensure the transition to net-zero is one which foregrounds social justice and promotes individual and societal wellbeing? How can we use this knowledge to our advantage?
Councillor Susan Aitken sits down with urbanist Greg Clark for an in-depth conversation about climate change, cities and leadership, and about how Glasgow is de-carbonising its economy and infrastructure and contributing to the UK’s net zero goals.
Over 300 local authorities in the UK have declared climate emergencies – representing 90% of the population and many have set target dates to achieve net zero for both their own operations and for the wider community.
