Talking resilience and achieving net-zero

On Tuesday 12 January, Resilience First and The Resilience Shift partner for an interactive webinar with Shirley Rodrigues, Deputy Mayor for Energy and Environment for the Greater London Authority (GLA).

Following the recent onslaught from Covid-19 and the resurgence in calls for a #greenrecovery, Deputy Mayor Rodrigues will be outlining the GLA’s latest plans to achieving the ambitious target of London becoming a net-zero city by 2050.

During the session, Resilience Shift Executive Director, Seth Schultz, will chair a discussion on the opportunities and challenges that the pandemic has created for transitioning cities towards a more sustainable way of living.

Their conversation will also cover air pollution across London, delivery of the ‘Energy for Londoners‘ programme (which is helping Londoners generate more low-carbon electricity), and plans to boost London’s recycling rates – all elements that contribute to making London more resilient.

Keynote: Shirley Rodrigues, Deputy Mayor for Energy and Environment, Greater London Authority

Shirley Rodrigues was appointed as Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy in October 2016. She is using her environmental expertise to work with Transport for London (TfL) to deliver the Mayor’s plans for tackling air pollution across London. This includes: expanding the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), new charges for the oldest and most polluting vehicles, and creating Low Emission Bus Zones.

She is also overseeing delivery of the Energy for Londoners programme (helping Londoners generate more low-carbon electricity), helping to boost London’s recycling rates and cutting landfill. She’s working to deliver the ambitious target of London becoming a zero-carbon city by 2050.
