The Climate Change Committee called for a public engagement strategy on net zero which includes involving people in decision-making and providing trusted information.

This episode considers three different techniques which councils could use to engage their communities on the climate emergency in their local areas. We also hear about Camden’s Climate Assembly where Councillor Adam Harrison talks through the process, impact, and challenges, for councils to consider if using a similar approach.
