For nearly three decades the UN has been bringing together
almost every country on earth for global climate summits – called COPs – which
stands for ‘Conference of the Parties’. In that time, climate change has gone
from being a fringe issue to a global priority, and this year will be the 26th
annual summit – giving it the name COP26. With the UK as President, COP26 takes
place in Glasgow from Sunday 31st October to Thursday
12th November 2021.
The London Borough of Hounslow declared a climate
emergency in June 2019 and adopted our Climate
Emergency Action Plan (CEAP) in July 2020 which sets out our
ambitious target to be net zero as an organisation by 2030, whilst
influencing a wider borough reduction in carbon emissions. The delivery of
our Green Recovery Strategy will accelerate the work needed to
achieve our net zero target.
As part of COP26 activity in Hounslow, we would like to
invite you to the Hounslow Environment and Climate Community Summit on
Friday 5th November at Hounslow House from 12:30pm – 4pm. This will be an
open afternoon where we will raise awareness of the work underway to meet our
climate emergency declaration and to accelerate a green recovery as we recover
from the pandemic as well as inspire, engage and encourage community action.
can sign up via Event Brite here, and if you have any questions please
don’t hesitate to get in touch.
