【NEW】JLGC Seminar: Carbon Neutral Cities in Japan and the UK

📢 JLGC Seminar: Carbon Neutral Cities in Japan and the UK

📅 November 22, 10.00 (GMT)

📍 Online (register here)

Policies to promote carbon neutrality among local and regional governments are increasingly important to reach national net zero targets, with Japan and the UK both committed to achieving these by 2050. In particular, it is in their urban areas where innovative practices and cross-border collaborations can be found.

The JLGC Seminar is an annual opportunity for policymakers and researchers to address the most pressing challenges facing local governments in both countries, this year focusing on carbon neutrality in local government projects, following our annual Study Tour to Japan for UK local governments on this theme earlier in the year.

Join us on November 22 from 10.00 to hear from Japanese experts including the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Tokorozawa City Government and the University of Tokyo Institute for Future Initiatives, with UK panellists including the Core Cities UK/3Ci, Greater Manchester Combined Authority, London & Partners and the Local Government Association.
