VIRTUAL EVENT - CLIMATE: Getting cities to net zero - Institute for Government on GEO´
Event Supported by Gowling WLG 
This event will take place live on: Tuesday 12 October 2021, 12:30 - 13:30


Hitting the UK’s net zero target depends on the transformation of the UK’s cities. Many had already declared climate emergencies and set ambitious emissions targets before the pandemic, while big changes in the last 18 months – less commuting, more walking and cycling – have had big implications for urban areas.


But to help people permanently shift to low-carbon lifestyles requires local leaders to develop long-term approaches to infrastructure, taxes and regulations.

What needs to be done to ensure long-term transformation? 
Which pandemic-enforced changes should remain in place? 
How can cities and central government work together to make progress towards net zero?

On our panel to discuss these questions will be:

Polly Billington, Chief Executive at UK100
Professor Hayley Fowler, Professor of Climate Change Impacts at Newcastle University
Nicola Yates, Chief Executive Officer at Connected Places Catapult
Final panellist to be confirmed

The event will be chaired by Tom Sasse, Associate Director at the Institute for Government with opening remarks by Giles Clifford, Partner at Gowling WLG
