After the success of our Pathways to Net Zero Emissions Webinar series last year, LGNSW is pleased to bring a new FREE Climate Change Webinar Series in partnership with the NSW Government.

This series will include four, 90-minute webinars showcasing how many councils displayed adaptation in action via the Increasing Resilience to Climate Change grant projects, as well as how councils can fund net zero emissions actions.

Our guest speakers from a range of councils will share practical tools, challenges and lessons learnt in implementing their projects. Discussion will also include how to address climate change in your own operations and communities.

We encourage you to register for all four free webinars:
