COP28 will take place from 30 November until 12 December 2023 and here in Bankside we're all about practical action. We'll be hosting our Climate Think-In to bring Banksiders together as we explore, learn and share ideas for driving climate action. This Think-In will take a closer look at energy in Southwark - from residents living in energy poverty to accessing help, from retrofit projects and building decarbonisation to voluntary offsetting opportunities. Meet the panel: Topics we'll cover: We'll hear a short presentation from each of our speakers with the chance to explore these topics in more depth through a Panel Discussion and Q&A. There will then be an opportunity to share your own ideas and explore opportunities to collaborate with local businesses in our breakout session. Details: This event will be taking place in the Feeny Room at The Africa Centre with refreshments provided. Location: Feeny Rom, The Africa Centre - link to Google Maps Any dietary requirements please email sh@betterbankside.co.uk. Looking for more?

The Mayor's Business Climate Challenge is offering a FREE webinar for London businesses to understand how to implement proven energy saving technology in their buildings, including: The experts leading the training will discuss how these technologies work and how they can help improve your building's energy efficiency. It will be an interactive session to help you take this learning back into your business. Who should attend? This FREE training is part of The Mayor's Business Climate Challenge, an energy efficiency programme which supports businesses to reduce their energy consumption and accelerates building decarbonisation efforts in London. The training aims to help London businesses to reduce carbon emissions from their building. Businesses based in London, but not formally part of The Mayor's Business Climate Challenge, are welcome to attend. Why attend? Emissions from heating and powering London’s commercial and industrial buildings make up 36 per cent of the capital’s carbon footprint. Decarbonising the city’s building stock is pivotal to reach the Mayor’s net zero target by 2030. To meet these targets, businesses will need to invest in measures to reduce energy demand from their buildings. Learning outcomes By attending this training, you will gain a better understanding of which technologies are best suited to your building and what should be considered when installing these technologies to help meet energy and carbon reduction targets and create a more comfortable and productive working environment. This session will be run as a live online event and will be recorded so that it can be accessed as a video.

From lunch time gardening to a Think-In at the Tate, from ‘Drawing Breath’ workshop with artist Dryden Goodwin to bike maintenance workshop.

In London, over 9,000 premature deaths are associated with air pollution every year. From respiratory conditions such as asthma to cardiovascular disease and lung cancer, recent studies are showing the increasing links between our health and cleaner air. This year also marks the 10-year anniversary of the death of Ella Adoo Kissi Debrah – the first person in the UK to have air pollution listed as a cause of death on her death certificate. Ella’s Law is currently being reviewed by the House of Lords to establish a child’s right to grow up in a healthy environment and to breathe clean air.  The more we can do to raise awareness of air quality, the more we can do to protect our health and understand what needs to be done.    Find out more about Clean Air Day and sign up for our other events in the area on the day.

COP28 will take place from 30 November until 12 December 2023 and here in Bankside we're all about practical action. We'll be hosting our Climate Think-In to bring Banksiders together as we explore, learn and share ideas for driving climate action. This Think-In will take a closer look at energy in Southwark - from residents living in energy poverty to accessing help, from retrofit projects and building decarbonisation to voluntary offsetting opportunities. Meet the panel: Topics we'll cover: We'll hear a short presentation from each of our speakers with the chance to explore these topics in more depth through a Panel Discussion and Q&A. There will then be an opportunity to share your own ideas and explore opportunities to collaborate with local businesses in our breakout session. Details: This event will be taking place in the Feeny Room at The Africa Centre with refreshments provided. Location: Feeny Rom, The Africa Centre - link to Google Maps Any dietary requirements please email sh@betterbankside.co.uk. Looking for more?
