About the Webinars:
The South Downs Network is hosting a series of webinars in support of the aims of the Global Climate Change conference, COP26, which takes place in Glasgow next month in November 2021. This video covers the first one in the series, entitled ‘Emissions & Pollution from Transport’ and it was broadcast on October 27th 2021 According to the UK Government’s latest report (2021), the transport sector is the largest emitter of global warming gases, producing 27% of the UK’s total emissions. It is essential that this area of emissions is tackled, in order to reach net zero by 2050. This webinar explores what is being done and what more needs to be done. We have three speakers who will help us explore ways of reducing global warming emissions
