Our second webinar of the 2023 series tackled the cost of living crisis: what impact is this having on councils' ability to meet their net zero goals, and will there be a negative knock-on from people needing to save money? LGC’s editor Sarah Calkin and a panel of experts discussed the challenges on the horizon. This event was held on 14 June 2023 and is free to watch on-demand for new registrants to the series.
