A series of focus groups are taking place to understand how local residents view climate change, and give them the opportunity to share their thoughts on Nottingham's ambition to become the first UK city to be carbon neutral by 2028.
The focus groups are being led by a team of researchers at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) and Nottingham City Council.
The aim of the sessions is to understand:
- Concerns about climate change
- How people want Nottingham to work towards its goal of becoming carbon neutral
- What they think about Nottingham's strategy to become carbon neutral by 2028
- What they think the government should discuss when it hosts the United Nations 2021 Climate Conference in Glasgow this year
A range of available sessions are taking place throughout May to gather local views. The sessions are open to residents aged 18 and over, who are living in Nottingham.
If you're interested in getting involved, take a look at the dates below and then head on over to the Eventbrite booking page to choose your slot.
Each session will last around 1.5 hours. You can join the chat from a computer, tablet or smartphone, any device that allows you to listen and to type in your views.
The sessions will run on the following dates:
- Tuesday 11 May 2021, 6.30pm-8pm
