Co-benefits of the climate action imperative
In this webinar we discussed the co-benefits of climate action such as those on health and wellbeing. In addition to science and policy perspectives, we also heard about how co-benefits are already being realised in some communities. We were joined by speakers from the University of Leeds, the UK Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, and Belfast City Council.

Mitigation: a road to Net Zero
In this webinar, we considered what is meant by Net Zero and looked at the UK Government’s priorities for achieving their aim of reaching Net Zero by 2050. We considered the science backdrop and how this can help with the implementation of Net Zero, sharing lessons learnt by the Met Office in implementing our Net Zero strategy. Finally, we discussed industry sustainability. We were joined by speakers from the University of Leeds, the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, and the Civil Aviation Authority.
