Council Climate Policy & Action

Climate Emergency UK has launched a new Local Climate Policy Programme, designed to give attendees a 3 week crash course in Council climate policy and action.

The workshops, alongside the practical experience of assessing local climate action plans, are designed to help you develop your knowledge, skills and experience around local climate policy and action. Your assessments will also help create a new National Scoring System for local authorities – helping your community and other people around the UK understand how well Councils are tackling the climate crisis, who’s doing well and what is possible.

You can find more information on the programme here:  https://www.climateemergency.uk/the-local-climate-policy-programme/

To apply: https://forms.gle/HXFJZY1YrPuT3QbaA


If you are not able to commit to the training programme but would still like to be involved in assessing local authority Climate Action Plans then we are also looking for Volunteer Assessors.

As one of our Climate League Volunteer Assessor you will play a crucial role in the new National Scoring System for local authorities climate action plans. This is a big piece of work with over 400 action plans to be marked and we need you to help out.

As a Volunteer Assessor you will be required to score 2 plans a month and attend one 2 hour training session on the second and fourth Wednesday of August.

We will provide training so you don’t need any experience. In fact, the less you know about Councils might help you to be a good objective marker! This is a great opportunity to understand how local Councils work, as well as understanding local government policy on climate action.
