COP 26 and Campaign for Climate Powers
The LGA Lib Dem Group’s lead councillor on Climate Change issues, Cllr Pippa Heylings, has written a letter calling on the Prime Minister to give local government full powers to deliver a zero carbon future. Please sign up here – and encourage your group to do so as well!
Pippa will also be hosting her next Zoom meeting ‘COP 26 and Campaign for Climate Powers for Councils’ on Thursday 30th September at 7.30 p.m. Click here: COP 26 and Campaign for Climate Powers for Councils
Pippa will give a unique insight into the preparations for the most important global climate summit, COP 26, being hosted by the UK in Glasgow later this year. Pippa is a member of the cross-party LGA Climate Change Task Force that is meeting with Ministers in the run-up to the climate summit. In this Zoom meeting, Pippa will highlight the huge gap between the Tory government’s plans and the reality of what is needed to reduce carbon emissions to avoid climate breakdown. Learn all about the Lib Dem campaign for a COP 26 announcement to give local councils the climate powers and funding they need to turn the words of their climate emergency declarations into action at speed.
