We were hoping to do this in person in the pub but unfortunately there’s some sort of global pandemic upon us. So alas it still has to be online. The benefit of this of course is that our session over a few drinks isn’t geographically constrained and we can all get together. And still bring a drink.
So come and join us on Monday 18th October from 4pm AEDT where we’ll bring together experts from the key networks and discuss:
COP 101 for Australian Councils
Race to Zero Translated: Exactly what this all means for Australian councils and how to get involved.
How Australian programs and networks align with the Race to Zero
What happens after COP26
The Great Acronym Buster: COP, CPP, BFA, RTZ, GCoM, ICLEI, CAD, RAD, CDP, WFT?
QA with our experts
In attendance we’ll have the crew from the BFA Local Government Sector Working Group - Lisa Cliff from CANA, Darcy Pimblett from CPP, Cathy Oke from Innovate4Cities / Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy and the Melbourne Centre for Cities, Alexi Lynch from Ironbark Sustainability, Stephanie Ziersch from Stephanie Ziersch Consulting, and Margot Delafoulhouze from Climateworks. A few more special guests will be there including Jessica Robbins from ICLEI Oceania and others to be announced.
We’ll start at 4pm and have speakers for the first 20-25min giving a quick overview. Then quickly onto QA until 4:45pm unless we have stragglers that want to reach for the Negronis and Old Fashioned, in which case we’ll gladly stay around a little longer.
Attendees will also receive the Australian Councils and Climate Action Acronym Buster and Cheat-Sheet, just in time for COP.
