More than 350 people have now registered to attend Wiltshire’s first Climate Summit, taking place virtually on Friday – and there is still time to sign up.
The session, organised by Devizes MP Danny Kruger with support from Wiltshire Council and other Wiltshire and Swindon MPs, will explore potential options for tackling climate change in the run up to COP26, hosted by the UK in Glasgow in November.
Mr Kruger will be joined by speakers including Andrew Griffiths MP (the Prime Minister’s envoy to business for the net zero target), Minette Batters of the NFU, the former President of COP26 and former Devizes MP Claire O’Neill, and Juliet Davenport, founder of Good Energy.
Climate lobby groups from across Wiltshire will also share their ideas and proposals for reaching Net Zero, and make their own recommendations for changes to local and national policy.
There will be opportunity for questions and break-out discussions around climate change locally, globally, in business and environmental considerations in food and farming.
The event is taking place this Friday (February 19) from 11am to 4pm. If you would like to attend, please sign up here before 12pm on Thursday, February 18. Those who have already registered will receive joining instructions on Thursday afternoon.
