Thursday, November 11 2021 12:00 PM 1:30 PM BST

How can organisations in Leicester respond to climate change? De Montfort University have worked with Leicester City Council to pilot a new self-service toolkit for community organisations in the city, highlighting how to measure your emissions, key steps to reduce your carbon footprint and how to find further guidance and support. Join this session to hear top tips arising from this work and explore collaborative opportunities with others to help all our city’s organisations come together to make our city’s target of carbon neutrality by 2030 reality. This event also forms part of the [email protected] event series, linked to the global climate talks.
