[London Climate Action Week] Participate in the event "Get Net Zero Right" convened by the UN High-Level Climate Champions!

Date of the event: 28 June

Time: 12:00 - 13:30

With 4 months to go ahead of COP26, London Climate Action Week creates an open space for London’s unique and world leading array of climate organisations, professionals and sectoral actors to come together to find practical solutions to climate change. 

The High-Level Climate Champions will open this London Climate Action Week with a climate ’town hall meeting’ - Get Net Zero Right - a flagship event holding a frank conversation with leading civil society voices and key net zero initiatives on the need to get net zero right rather than get rid of it.

Recognising the urgency of climate action and the increasing scrutiny of climate commitments by non-state actors, this event will reflect on the history of net zero, debate the current credibility challenges with non-state climate action, and explore the future of net zero efforts ahead of COP26 and beyond.

The event will be moderated by environmental correspondent Fiona Harvey, who will be joined by leading climate experts including:

In addition to this event, the UN High Level Climate Champions are opening a Public Consultation on the Future of Race to Zero on Wednesday June 23 2021 at 17:00 – 18:00 BST.

This process, driven by the High-Level Champions on Climate Action and all the Race to Zero Partners, will explore how to drive cooperation and coordination within the climate action ecosystem to leverage different non-State actors’ capacities and expertise with a view to ensure the implementation of robust climate action based on credible net-zero targets.

This session will open a 10-week period for written-submissions on specific questions to be outlined during this consultation. The written submission form will be made publicly available directly after the briefing.
