This first episode provides a foundation to inform senior council managers and councillors of the need to act and address the climate emergency. Our speakers discuss two main questions:

  1. Why should local government care about the climate crisis and why do they need to act now?
  2. Why engage the public on climate change and the climate emergency?


  • Councillor Clyde Loakes, Deputy Leader of Waltham Forest London Borough Council
  • Professor Andy Gouldson, Professor of Environmental Policy at the University of Leeds, Chair of the Leeds Climate Commission and Director of the Yorkshire and Humber Climate Commission.
