Climate Summit for Local Government 2023

6 Sep 2023 - 8 Sep 2023
2:00pm - 4:00pm
RMIT Storey Hall Melbourne

Welcome to the premier climate and clean energy event for local government leaders.

No community within Australia remains untouched by climate change. Extreme weather events are worsening, and the impacts are reverberating throughout our communities.
As the level of government closest to the community, councils are at the heart of responding – to keep our communities safe and strengthen their resilience in the future.

The Cities Power Partnership’s Climate Summit for Local Government will bring together elected officials and chief executives from councils across the country to identify key opportunities, inform practical actions, and inspire innovation, all at the local government level.

If you are a mayor, councillor or executive at any of Australia’s 537 local governments and you are looking to embed climate action into council operations, communications, community education and more, our first in-person Summit in five years is not to be missed!

This event is for councils at all stages of the climate action and resilience journey, whether you’re a council with plenty of climate initiatives under your belt or just getting started. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from inspiring case studies and experts in climate science and resilience. There will also be ample opportunity to network with other council leaders, as well as connect with leading clean energy businesses in our exhibition space.

A more detailed program and list of speakers will be available closer to the Summit date. You can find more information, including key program topics, at our event website.

Who should attend?

Elected officials (e.g. Mayors and Councillors) and council executives (CEOs, General Managers, etc) from any of Australia’s 537 local governments.
