Event description

Description

Barnet Climate Action Group (BCAG) is made up of concerned residents of the London Borough of Barnet from across faith, cultural, environmental & political organisations, wanting to take action tackling the climate emergency. BCAG has met monthly since May 2019 at St Mary's Church Finchley.

Thank you to all those who attended an excellent November 2019 meeting which looked at opportunities within the borough to develop community energy opportunities, with a presentation on projects developed by groups based in neighbouring borough, Haringey - Muswell Hill Sustainability Group (MHSG) and en10ergy.

This month we will be looking at 'What are London councils committing to a climate emergency doing?' and are pleased to have as a guest speaker Syed Ahmed, Director of the research and campaigning organisation Energy for London. Twenty-six London councils have now signed declarations to undertake actions to reduce their climate impact. Signfifcant activity is now underway to look how homes can be made more energy efficient, transport cleaner and neighbourhoods greener. Syed, who has over 20 years experience working in the sustainable energy field, with a specific focus on London over the past decade, will provide examples of local authority action taking place. A follow-up will discussion will examine 'What is Barnet Council Doing on Energy and Climate'.
