City Makers’ Forum – How is London responding to the climate emergency?

 Registration is closed for this event


The Mayor has declared a climate emergency. He has committed to making London a zero-carbon city by 2050 and the London Environment Strategy (May 2018) showcases the policies and programmes to get us there.

At least twenty-two London boroughs have followed suit and are busy setting their own ambitious carbon reduction targets. The changes will require investment, but the costs of not acting far outweigh those of early implementation (Stern Review, Oct 2006).

The opportunities of new technology, the circular economy and a Green New Deal are clear, with widespread public support and political will for net zero initiatives and mitigation and adaptation strategies. Questions remain: Who will lead this change and how will they galvanise the support required to meet net zero targets?

This event will focus on strategic approaches and will bring together a diverse, cross-sector network of next-wave leaders to answer these questions and present their own perspectives of the challenges facing London.

The series is a partnership between cross-sector built environment network Future of London and economic and regeneration consultancy Hatch Regeneris.
