A campaign to champion sustainable growth in North Lanarkshire ahead of a major global diplomatic conference in Glasgow later this year.
ACT 2021 - Action on Climate Together, aims to outline a roadmap for the council and its partners, businesses and communities to take realistic action to curb climate change locally.
The campaign follows the council's declaration of a climate emergency in 2019 and ahead of the Conference of Parties (COP26) event in Glasgow, the most important global diplomatic conference on climate change since the Paris Agreement was signed in 2016.
A programme of events will address key crisis issues around climate change including: the local government as a system leader in the transition to net zero, the role of schools, education and young people in promoting sustainable lifestyles, managing a transition to a zero carbon economic model, and the role of businesses to facilitate sustainable change and growth.
The first event – Whose Problem is it Anyway? - is an online climate emergency response seminar for the public sector, taking place on 18 May 2021 which will explore what people can do at home and at work to mitigate climate change.
We’ll continue to provide advice on practical measures that individuals, communities, businesses and the public sector can take to act on climate change.
