How local councils can engage with residents to reduce their carbon emissions – Giki Zero

Thu, 29 Jul 2021 13:30

Time: 1.30pm to 2.30pm

Cost: £15.00 or £11.25 with small council bursary

Three-quarters of councils have now declared a climate emergency in the UK and a crucial next step is working through what this means in terms of councils' operational and residents' carbon footprints. Many councils will be considering, or already working towards Net Zero, and a key requirement to get there, is motivating residents to recognize the benefits of a low carbon transition.
Councils' environmental impacts are often intertwined with residents' footprints in terms of issues such as waste disposal, transport, and council housing. As a result, a combined approach requires taking action within areas under councils' direct control, but also engaging residents to understand, embrace and enhance these changes through their actions and lifestyle choices. The purpose of the session is to encourage community engagement with minimum resource and maximum value.

Standards of Behaviour Expected of Someone Holding Public Office, such as a Councillor

Standards of Behaviour Expected of Someone Holding Public Office, such as a Councillor

2.00pm - 3.30pm £22.50 or £16.88 with small council bursary.

Many of the problems that these Associations see arising in councils are preventable if everyone acts with integrity and importantly, understands the correct route to take if they feel there is a problem. This session will look at this, together with the standards of behaviour expected of someone that is holding public office, such as a local councillor. The focus will be on expectations, considering behaviours via different scenarios and finding remedies for reasonable action should a councillor feel that something is not working well with their council.
