Event details

Awareness of the role of metro mayors has hugely increased over the past year, especially in fronting the regional pandemic response.

But what part can and should they be playing in supporting national action on the climate crisis?

We heard from the Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street, about the difference he hopes to make and his priorities for climate action.

His speech was followed by a panel discussion exploring the particular challenges faced by regional leaders in fulfilling this role, highlighting examples of best practice around the country.
