Alan Mak MP organised and hosted the Havant Constituency Local COP26 Environment and Climate Conference with Government Ministers and local business leaders amongst the keynote speakers.
Timed to coincide with the United Nations’ COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Alan wanted to make the issues relatable and relevant to local residents by focusing on the individual actions that can make a big difference locally. The Conference also highlighted good practices and case studies from our local area.
The Conference was held virtually and included panel discussions with senior figures from local government officials, business representatives, community groups, environmental experts, and young people. Alan also secured interviews with Environment Ministers Rebecca Pow and Zac Goldsmith, plus a message of support from President of COP26, Alok Sharma.
Topics covered during the Conference included tackling and reducing discharges into local harbours, the work of local councils and community groups, nature and rewilding, the use of energy, infrastructure policy. The Conference also showcased work done by local schools.
