Building democratic support for local climate action report launch
About the report launch
The LGIU hosted a session exclusively for its members to launch a new report on building consensus for decarbonisation among local communities. The report discusses the challenges councils face in implementing climate action plans amidst budget constraints and rising costs of living. Attendees engaged in discussions with experts and other participants about the report’s findings and their implications for local government.
