Wales Climate Week
22 November 2021 - 26 November 2021
The week will kick-start a nationwide conversation on the Net Zero Wales Plan and the collective action needed to ensure Wales meets its targets. Open to all, the online sessions will help people understand what Wales has already achieved, what changes we can expect in the next five years and how, together, we can shape the future.
Each day’s programme will take on a different theme and include presentations, discussions and debates involving a wide range of organisations from every corner of Wales. Delegates can register to watch any or all of the sessions live, leave comments and ask questions as part of the virtual audience.
Content from all Wales Climate Week sessions will be made available via the On-demand page.
An overview of the Wales Climate Week themes is provided below.
