CPP May Webinar – Climate Snapshot: How Aussie councils are getting it done

30 May 2023
2:00pm - 3:00pm
Join us on Zoom

Join us on Tuesday 30th May at 2pm AEST as the Cities Power Partnership team provides a detailed snapshot of where Australian councils are at with their climate actions.

In five years, the Cities Power Partnership has become Australia’s largest network of local councils leading the way to a thriving, zero emissions future. With 180 councils on board, we have seen tangible action and huge emissions reductions taking place all across the country. 

Every year, we roll out a Reporting and Feedback Survey to our members to gain insights, help inform the future of the program, and to receive an update on their Cities Power Partnership pledges. The latest report Tracking Progress: 2022 Snapshot of Council Action on Climate Change, summarises the results from the 158 councils who completed 2022’s survey. It also shows how CPP is supporting councils to take effective climate action, and identifies opportunities to enhance that support.

Come along to learn more about the following:

  • An in-depth look at the key findings from the report including an overview of the common trends across climate actions taken by our member councils
  • The common key barriers that councils face when taking action on climate change.
  • Learn why the data provided to us is so important in the journey towards a thriving, zero emissions future


Those with access to Council Connect will receive a direct calendar invitation and do not need to also register via the registration button below.
