Councils are under pressure to tackle the climate and biodiversity emergencies, while also delivering a green recovery from coronavirus. They need to act fast, with practical solutions that bring everyday benefits such as better jobs and clean air, as well as lower emissions.
These proven climate solutions already exist. Right now they are unlocking greener transport, warmer homes, improved community cohesion and much more. But local authorities are under pressure with limited resources, and sometimes lack the skills and expertise to create change. We don’t have time for councils to learn in isolation or act alone.
That’s why we set up three local authority learning hubs, identifying successful initiatives and showing how they can be quickly adapted and implemented locally. Each of the three hubs has a different focus, chosen based on feedback from the region’s local authorities.
North East England
Beyond scope three emissions: driving local wealth creation through procurement.
Delivering strong citizen and community engagement with limited resources.
West of England
Delivering large-scale home retrofit.
