As part of our sector support offer, the LGA is offering a wide range of opportunities to help councils address climate change and environmental sustainability needs. 

Our virtual events and roundtables seek to promote the notable practice happening in councils across England. These opportunities aim to support universal learning and the sharing of innovative solutions which councils can learn from and replicate.

Decarbonising transport

Wednesday 22 November 2023, 10.00am – 11.30am | councillors and officers | virtual

Virtual events provide councils with the opportunity to hear from peers and experts to adopt scalable learning, processes, practice, and tools.

Transport is now the biggest emitter of carbon of any sector in the UK. If we are to reach our target of net zero emissions by 2050 or sooner, we will need a fundamental transformation of the ways we move. This webinar will share good practice examples from councils who are developing and delivering decarbonising transport strategies and provision across urban and rural communities, across active travel, traditional forms of transport and public transport options.

As the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) is ongoing in the United Arab Emirates, the LGA is hosting a virtual event to draw attention to notable practice being delivered by councils to reach net zero. We will hear from councils working on sustainability related projects linked with the COP28 themes: inclusion, technology and innovation, finance, and frontline communities.
