Net Zero Week – what's the politics of all this?

Join us for our Net Zero Week  - what's the politics of all this? Session 

A session to discuss the political and policy landscape including who and how the UK’s Net Zero journey will be funded.

We’ll be joined by Matt Harrison, BEIS, Will Jeffwitz, Head of Policy at NHF, Karen Mitchell, Chief Executive of Southway Housing Trust and Alozie Ohuonu, UNIFY (Cross-Housing BAME Network) who will all discuss: 

  • The political landscape on this agenda.
  • What is the government doing?
  • What role is there for local government and action?
  • What diversity issues must we be talking about and acting upon?
  • And how might we pay for it all?

This session might not be able to give us all the answers but you will come away from this session understanding more of the bigger picture and the challenges and drivers.
