As a key milestone for UK locally-elected leaders in the run-up to COP26, this international conference this July is an unmissable opportunity to agree priorities for local climate action with high-level decision-makers.

Jointly hosted by the Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street, the lineup of expert speakers also includes COP26 President Alok Sharma MP, Leader of Glasgow City Council Cllr Susan Aitken, Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, Mayor of Los Angeles Eric GarcettiHelen Hayes MP, CEO of GB&I and Siemens Carl Ennis, Operations Director at National Grid System Operator Duncan Burt, and Parliamentary Under Secretary of State Rachel Maclean MP.

As so many local councils and city regions have committed to an early shift to Net Zero, we will explore how they can accelerate the transition by demonstrating the power and effectiveness of local leadership on climate action.

The conference programme will bring together expert speakers and leading decision-makers from local and national government, business, NGOs, academia and trade bodies.
