Cornwall responding to the Climate Emergency

How the Doughnut Economics model has been used in Cornwall to respond to the complexity of the climate emergency.

Understanding how to respond to the ongoing Climate Emergency is a challenge shared by businesses, charities and other organisations across Cornwall. It is important to demonstrate positive action, and to build our own resilience, but putting it into practice is difficult.

The presentation outlines how it works, the benefits and challenges it can bring and how to find support to develop the idea to suit your own organisation, as well as how Cornwall Council have adapted it to inform decision-making throughout the organisation.

Presented as part of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce’s Festival of Business on 5 November 2020 by Peter Lefort, Sector & Partnership Lead for Carbon Neutral Cornwall at Cornwall Council. For more information contact Peter via
