New Zero Carbon Britain course looks at how we can scale up community action

How can communities take the next steps on the road to a just transition, and how do we kick-start the implementation of local zero carbon plans?

CAT’s new Zero Carbon Britain course will explore how communities can best meet the challenge of the climate change and biodiversity crises in a time of political uncertainty – the science says we must, the technology says we can, time to say we will!

Drawing on our extensive experience working with communities, local authorities, and on our flagship in-house Zero Carbon Britain research and the expertise from our Graduate School of the Environment, the Zero Carbon Britain team invite you to join us for a day of interactive learning and discussions focusing on the key question: what next for your community?

Join our new one-day online course, Zero Carbon Britain – Scaling-up Community Action to explore what you can do in your community.
