Welcome to the South Shropshire Climate Action Conference 2020.
Conference divides into random ‘breakout rooms’ with 6 people per room.
Activity: Please bring a short quotation to share with fellow participants. It might give hope, be thoughtful, be challenging, or give a dose of realism to the huge task in hand – that of transforming our world to net zero. We’ve added some quotes to the website to give you a few ideas, but feel free to bring your own.

Breakout rooms for each Theme
By each of the Convenors
The Convenors will host ‘breakout rooms’ to discuss their Theme with you in greater depth. The aim of the ‘breakout rooms’ are to form groups of people for each Theme who are committed to taking the discussions forward after the Conference and forming a Net-Zero Action Plan.
There will be a comfort break during the afternoon session.
Final plenary session
Each of the Themes will give a short summary of their ‘breakout room’ followed by a closing statement, which will give some indication of the next steps.
