Many councils have declared a climate emergency and pressure is growing for councils to act on those declarations. But what does an effective strategy for emissions reductions look like in a place? Where can councils take direct steps to reduce emissions and where must they mobilise a wider network of partners and residents? And how can that wider mobilisation be made to work? 

Failure to answer these questions could be costly both in terms of a council’s credibility and in terms of environmental goals. There is much to learn from behavioural insights interventions and other approaches being adopted across the country. This session will be a prime opportunity to hear from councils taking action and think through new responses yet to be tried. 

Participation in New Local events is free and exclusive to members of our Network. If you would like to find out more, please contact Francesca.

“Do not miss a New Local Innovation Exchange – I came back to my council with fresh insights, practical ideas for implementation and a brand new network of people in exactly the same boat as me” 

Joanna Ruffle, Director of Transformation, Southend Council

Innovation Exchanges give member councils a space to step away from day-to-day activities and engage with peers from across the country. Each session unpacks a big challenge or opportunity facing councils and their communities. Sessions are peer-led and practically focused, so you should walk away with insights, ideas and learning to share with your team.
