The award winning Zero 2030 Climate Conference took place on 4 March 2020.
This collaboration between Worthing Climate Action Network, Transition Town Worthing and Adur and Worthing Council took eight months to co-organise and hosted 300 delegates on the day. Taking place across Worthing Town Hall, The Assembly Rooms and part of Worthing Museum, and generously supported by the Council and Lush, it was a huge yet highly successful undertaking.
The event outcomes formed a report which will feed into and inform the new Sustainabilty AW Framework, as will the recommendations from the recent Climate Assembly, which will feature on our website once all the results are back.
Here are the presentations from the afternoon workshops – we will be adding the notes and outputs soon.
As part of their efforts to address the Climate Emergency, Adur & Worthing Councils commissioned a Climate Assembly to address the following questions:
The Climate Assembly followed the model for a citizens' assembly, with 45 residents of Adur and Worthing randomly selected to take part. Over four months, from September to December 2020, the 45 residents met online to listen to evidence, deliberated and then made recommendations that will formally go to Adur & Worthing Councils in January 2021.
This was one of the first Climate Assemblies anywhere to be conducted wholly online and Transition Town Worthing were invited to be part of the team of “experts” who were brought in to advise and address the assembly.

We will be publishing the recommendations of the Assembly when they become available.
