Peterborough Climate Debate

Every resident, business, organisation and community group has a role to play in supporting Peterborough to become a net-zero carbon city.

This is an ambitious challenge requiring significant behavioural change and infrastructure improvements. To have the highest chance of meeting this ambition, we need to develop plans to decarbonise which are supported by Peterborough’s residents, organisations, businesses and communities. The feedback we receive from the Peterborough Climate Debate will help direct the development of the climate change action plan. 

In the debate, we will share some information on greenhouse gas emissions across the city and discuss some potential decarbonisation options. We'll then hold a discussion and gather your input for your preferred solutions. You don't need any knowledge on climate change to take part.
