Invitation to Join Universities Local Climate Action Communities of Practice

Published on 13 June 2023

Wednesday 12  July 10.00-11.30am

The Cities & Regions Working Group of the UK Universities Climate Network (UUCN) is convening a Community of Practice (CoP) for university staff and academics working on local climate action and engagement. The CoP will meet online every two months, for an initial period of a year. It will provide peer-support, knowledge exchange and the potential for collaborative actions.

The CoP will focus on three levels of city and regional climate action:

  1. Analysis of specific frameworks, toolkits and good practice – what’s already out there?
  2. Insight into effective engagement practices and learning – what’s been working well?
  3. Exploration of the wider systemic barriers to effective collaboration – what else needs to shift?

The Community of Practice is facilitated by Peter Lefort (University of Exeter) and Vicki O’Kelly (University of Liverpool), co-leads of the UUCN’s Cities & Regions Working Group.
