Experts from the Universities for Nottingham partnership discuss Net Zero targets and community engagement for climate action.

Six months on from COP26 and with energy security top of the news agenda, a panel of experts from the two Universities and Nottingham City Council met last week as part of a programme of events linked to Sustainability Week to discuss the progress of their own institutional targets towards Net Zero.

Nottingham City Council's well publicised, ambitious plan for Nottingham to become the first city in the UK to achieve net zero carbon by 2028 forms the backdrop to the wide-ranging conversation chaired by NTU’s Professor Richard Bull.  Panel members, including the recently appointed Head of Carbon Reduction Projects and Policy at the City Council, Angie Lillistone, discussed their community engagement initiatives and explored ways to mobilise activism and climate positive behaviours within the community.  The panel also took questions from audience members.
