Event details

Join us for a collaborative discussion between Nottingham City Council, Nottingham Trent University, University of Nottingham and representatives from both students’ unions around addressing the global challenge presented by climate change and what we, as institutions, plan to do reduce carbon emissions. In this live, interactive session, participants will be able to submit questions for the panel to respond to. This session will be held virtually, and participants will be provided a link to join the session once they have registered.

Following the panel discussion, we will be hosting workshops where participants can share ideas and explore pathways to carbon neutrality through individual and collective action.

Take part to review the carbon actions that NTU, NCC and UoN have undertaken and where we are heading in terms of reducing carbon emissions. We will explore systems and policies in place and match this against wider (city, regional, national) aims and targets for carbon emissions. We will also explore steps we can take as individuals to reduce carbon emissions and how this supports wider efforts.
