We have always been very proud of our events. They brought people together and allowed them time and space to think through new problems. For obvious reasons we are moving things online - using MS Teams for smaller workshops and Zoom for larger events. We are trying to keep things interactive so bring your questions and your creativity.
A few people are getting frustrated when booking tickets for events very late (sometimes even after they have started). For reasons we needn't go into just now, we are not using the automatic integration of Eventbrite and Zoom. This means that shortly before the event a human (who we call Steve) will send you your link. Shortly before the event starts Steve will be mucking in with the event and will not see any late orders. So - book tickets at least a day in advance if you want to be sure.
A new cohort of 42 councils have received advice on "nutrient neutrality". We are holding a series of workshops to walk people through the issue, to try to answer their questions and to provide a roadmap to try and make progress. We will be supported by key people from Defra, Natural England, the Environment Agency and the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities.
You can see the initial six events on Eventbrite here. Our events focus on the short-term organisational response to nutrient neutrality, and will help draw together some ideas for how we might help in the longer term. The LGA is separately holding events for councillors.
