This event marks the publication of a joint report by the Civic University Network and the Institute for Community Studies, exploring the role of HEI’s in the climate action agenda, supporting place and communities in their just transition to net zero.
Through a series of roundtables, this programme of work brought together institutions from across the UK situated in places and communities with common transition challenges. The aim was to identify effective contributions and roles for HEIs in contribution or as leaders in their local area’s journey to net zero; to recognise what is already being done, identify gaps and challenges, and share and scale practice where it could support others to take greater action.
The report launched at this online panel event summarises the discussions and findings from those roundtables, putting forward a typology and an emerging place-based framework to explore the role of HEIs in the climate action agenda.
We are delighted to be welcoming a panel of experts from universities, community organisations and different industries.
