Levelling Up for better health, biodiversity and climate outcomes
The Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill aims to empower communities and local authorities to work together to deliver beautiful and sustainably developed houses and neighbourhoods. It also aims to achieve better environmental outcomes through plans that conserve and enhance nature and climate action.
In this lunchtime session, we hear from experts on the significant co-benefits for health, biodiversity and climate that could be achieved through the delivery of actions focused on the key areas of housing, transport and green space.
Presentations were followed by a panel discussion and question and answer session on challenges and opportunities.
