How cars can put the brake on climate breakdown | Tuesday 5 May 2020, 5pm | Tickets £5
We're delighted to be chairing two events at the inaugural London Climate Change Festival.
On Tuesday 5 May, Global Action Plan Senior Partner Chris Large will chair the panel discussion How cars can put the brake on climate breakdown, where panellists will discuss how, if we think about them differently, cars can have a role in a sustainable and clean air future.
The role of cars will need to shift so we will look at what this means for car ownership and usage. The session will draw on the experiences and insights of the panel and audience to consider the social justice issues around travel and collectively arrive at solutions which are both affordable and clean.
Chris will be joined by Christopher Hook, Head of Uber UK, James Taylor, General Manager of Zipcar UK and Sue Welland from youme.car. Tickets are £5 each and are available now!

2020 - The UK's year of climate action | Friday 20 March 2020, 8.30am-12.30pm
2020: the UK's year of climate action’, is a summit that aims to bring together an incredible breadth of people from across the UK; from fire fighters and NHS Trusts, to businesses, investors and cultural institutes.
The summit aims to showcase the range of actions already happening across the country to tackle climate change, whilst inspiring and igniting ideas and forward momentum from others.
With the UK set to host the UN Climate Summit (COP26) at the end of the year, there’s never been a more important time to spot new opportunities and synergies between different sectors, and spark innovative thinking about solutions and next steps for getting the UK on track to net zero that can set a precedent for the rest of the world.
The event is set to be hosted by Tom Clarke, the science editor at ITV news, with additional speakers from Sport Positive, Aviva, the London Climate Change Festival in the West End and more to be announced.
