Deliberative workshop - Climate Change adaptation

02 Oct 2020

10:00am - 12:00pm

Virtual

Overview

Across the regions we support – Yorkshire, the North East and northern Lincolnshire – the effects of climate breakdown are already being felt.

As we maintain the electricity network that powers your everyday life, we are battling increasingly volatile weather – including more storms, flooding and heat waves.

We must plan today for further changes to our local climate now in order to protect our community. As we define our next business plan to reflect your priorities and concerns, we are eager to speak with you to understand your views.

Please save the date for our Climate Change Adaptation Roundtable on the 2 October 2020 at 10am. We’ll share more information with you on the session shortly
