WRITTEN BY Local Partnerships
POSTED ON 8th November 2021

The MJ and Local Partnerships are pleased to announce that the second episode of our COP26 podcast series is now available to watch or listen to.

This episode considers key points that have emerged from the first week with particular scrutiny of the World Leaders’ Summit, Finance and Energy. Today’s guests are Sharon Kemp, Chief Executive of Rotherham MB Council, Carol Culley, Deputy Chief Executive of Manchester City Council and Felix Chow-Kambitsch from Aurora Energy Research.

The podcast series is designed for local authorities seeking to understand the implications of COP26 and decode what the high-level statements actually mean for the local government sector.

Other special guests on the podcast include chief executives of top performing authorities such as Tom Riordan, CEX of Leeds Council, Becky Shaw, CEX of East Sussex County Council and Ben Still, CEX of WYCA. The series is chaired by Heather Jameson, Editor of The MJ.

If you missed the first episode of the podcast, it’s available to watch or listen to here. It focuses on the aims of COP26 and what local and combined authorities should look out for in the run up to the summit.

The third and final podcast will spotlight what have we learned from the COP and what it will mean for local government. Please follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn for updates.
