Breakfast Networking Event: Responding to the Climate Emergency

Following the highly-anticipated United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, join us for a discussion on how organisations can respond to the climate emergency and do their bit towards the net zero target.

Our lead talk will be from a member of the University of Bath’s Climate Action Team – a selected group of people dedicated to the University’s transformational climate action work, responsible for finding more ways to lower its carbon impact and embed sustainability in its future.
