As we previously published, One Team Gov is holding a series of climate-related events around the world on 22nd January 2020. We’re delighted to announce that the first batch of tickets for the London event, at Newspeak House, is now available here!

What’s this event all about?

We’ve got 3 aims for the London event:

  • To teach people about climate issues
  • To connect people who are interested in the climate
  • To inspire action in the public sector to help tackle the climate crisis

Obviously, climate-related issues are extremely wide ranging. We’re open to discussing any aspect of the climate, environmental, or sustainability issues. We expect, via the format below, to be covering everything from plastic pollution, carbon holding/capture, transport, health, and equality, to deep research and applied case studies on how to help with the climate crisis.

What format will the day take?

We’re taking the unusual step of holding 3 mini-events back to back on the same day. They’ll be held 9am-1pm, 1pm-5pm and 5pm-9pm. We’re doing this for 3 reasons:

  • Our venue only holds 100 people and we’re expecting more interest than that, so we want to give as many people as possible the chance to be involved
  • Daytime events often exclude those who work in certain patterns. By holding a 12-hour event we hope to include as many people as possible.
  • Climate and environment is such a broad topic that we think taking this much time to talk about all its angles is justified.

On the day, you can expect a huge amount of conversation. Given how specialised the subject matter is, we’re going to invite some expert speakers in, and we’re also inviting you to pitch a session — fill in this form if you’re interested. And as ever with One Team Gov, the event will also include an unconference during each session.

What’s the difference in each session?

None in the format — regardless of the session(s) you register for, you can expect a mixture of unconferencing, pre-pitched sessions and expert speakers. We expect our external invitees to do one session only, but we’ll be balancing these over the 3 sessions so you’ll get a great experience whichever one you pick. We’ll be publishing a speaker list as we fill in the timeslots.

Who is welcome?

Although this is mainly an event to help the public sector be better prepared for the climate crisis, anyone who is interested in helping with climate issues is very welcome. We expect attendance from across central and local government, the charity and heritage sector, academia, think tanks and the private sector.

I’m really interested in this — what should I do?

That depends how you want to get involved.

If you’re interested in being an attendee or volunteer click here: pick your ticket type — for attendees, please register for a maximum of 2 sessions so that we can make sure as many people as possible get a chance to attend. For volunteers, register for as many sessions as you feel you can.

If you’re interested in running a session click here. You won’t need an attendee ticket if you’re running a session, and there’ll be further ticket releases if your session isn’t picked, so don’t worry if you’d like to come as an attendee regardless!

What else do I need to know?

We’re keen that this event be as inclusive as possible. We’ve kept some tickets back for underrepresented groups. We’ll be writing a specific post about this soon, but if you identify as part of an underrepresented group and would like a ticket please let us know.

The event will be part-catered, during the 2 overlaps between the 3 sessions, so you shouldn’t go hungry!

You can contact us on contact@oneteamgov.uk with any questions you might have.
