Tackling Climate Change - Open days

Environment Unit - June 2009
environment.unit@kirklees.gov.uk

Introduction

Kirklees Council has taken the lead on climate change for many years - setting ambitious emissions reduction targets and carbon budgets; giving everyone in the district free home insulation; developing solar villages, and raising awareness amongst staff, the public and our partners. In June 2009 we held a 2 day conference looking at tackling climate change in ways that have long term economic and social benefits.

The 2 days were a mixture of keynote speakers, seminars and site visits.

Who attended?

The conference attracted delegates from across the country and also from Europe. It was aimed at those involved in housing, climate change, waste, fuel poverty and energy management.
