How to measure and win council climate action?
Friday 09 June 2023
14:00 to 15:30
Over 83% of UK local councils have declared a Climate Emergency. But where is the climate action we need, such as solar farms, home retrofit, recycling and active travel routes?
Climate Emergency UK, along with the help of over 500 volunteers, have created the Council Climate Scorecards to measure planned and actual climate action from all 400 UK councils and hold them to account.
This session will cover:
* How Climate Emergency created the Council Climate Plan and Action Scorecards and what the results show
* How you can use the Scorecards in your campaigning – we’ll dig into the data and how you can use it effectively and compare your council to other councils
* A chance to connect with other campaigners from around the UK and learn from each other
Climate Emergency UK published the Council Climate Plan Scorecards, measuring the strength of councils written Climate Action Plans in January 2022 with coverage in The Guardian and throughout the UK.
Climate Emergency created and published the Council Climate Action Scorecards methodology in November 2022 covering 89 actions that councils can take, and some already are, to reach net-zero.
The zoom link for the session will be sent in an email to you when you register for the event.
