London Climate Action Week 2020

  • Online Event
  • Energy Transition

London Climate Action Week (LCAW) is an annual event bringing together world leading array of climate professionals and communities. LCAW creates space for London’s world leading array of climate professionals to come together to find solutions to climate change, highlights London as a platform for whole of society action and, acts as an inclusive event for those inside and outside London to showcase action on climate change to a global audience

As events in 2020 are teaching us, we must navigate the complexity of challenges that threaten our economic and societal resilience; acknowledging the need forge a just transition to a net zero future that embraces diversity and difference and plays its part in tackling disadvantage and division.

As many Londoners have international heritage, connections and experience LCAW has a global perspective. LCAW includes culturally rich events and initiatives with impacts and outcomes felt far beyond London’s geographic boundaries

London Climate Action Week 2020 (14-20 November) builds on the momentum of LCAW 2019 and July’s LCAW 2020 digital. We will convene communities and citizens from across London. LCAW 2020 aims to be a unifying moment shaping a whole of society response to the climate emergency.

Together, London’s cultural institutions, policy-makers, professionals, communities, faith leadership, academics and researchers will explore new solutions to transition to an equitable net zero carbon world.

LCAW November Structure Overview

The Ambition is to hold around 150 events in November 2020 again likely to be digital due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation. The November LCAW events will have a broader focus than the July series, aligned with the original intent for LCAW to act as a unifying moment for the climate community in London, and aiming to support the climate dialogue ahead of COP26. The LCAW ambition is to convene multiple participants across: community leadership, business leadership, London’s world-class cultural institutions, faith leaders, policy makers, researchers, and green finance professionals.

The November series will be convened around four broad themes:

  • Theme 1: Green, Fair and Resilient (GFR) Recovery
  • Theme 2: Roadmap to COP 26/Glasgow
  • Theme 3: Building a Sustainable, Net Zero London
  • Theme 4: Whole of Society Climate Mobilisation
