Creating Climate Neutral Towns and Cities

The Climate Emergency & Infrastructure Constructive Conversations – 14 March 2024.

This session focused on creating climate neutral towns and cities. We discussed plans to achieve net zero, and the part that active travel infrastructure can play in this goal. From climate action towns and networks, to net zero cities we explored what this means for those of us working to deliver infrastructure to people living in communities to help bring this about. Our expert panel spent half an hour discussing these questions and more.
