Let’s Talk Climate Action Cornwall and Isles of Scilly

November 8 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

An online COP26 Regional Roadshow event.

We want to bring businesses, organisations and community groups together to address the question ‘when everything is so global, what can I do?’

As the United Nations meet to accelerate world action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement, we need everyone to commit to act on climate change and create further momentum for action here in Cornwall.

This event will focus on key thematic areas in which we can all take action to reduce our impact. Through inspirational discussions between informed speakers and passionate and engaged local advocates, the event will highlight the issues of climate change and showcase projects and initiatives which demonstrate what action can be taken (in the form of case studies from our local businesses and communities).

The event will be held online and will be recorded so we can publish it on different platforms afterwards – by attending you agree to this.

You are welcome to attend the whole event or just those sessions you’re interested in.
