A Just Transition to Net Zero: London policymakers’ and researchers’ ideas around the retrofit challenges

Event information>



Event type


This World Café event will allow to identify local evidence needs and for policymakers and researchers working in the retrofit space to meet and share ideas.

This 2-hour event will use World Café principles – where a few policymakers will have the opportunity to briefly identify their local evidence needs to improve local outcomes and wellbeing, to researchers in the retrofit space, stakeholders from the business sector, community organisations and other London government staff (Greater London Authority, London Councils, London Boroughs / local authorities).  

This will be followed by stakeholders moving between each ‘area identified’ to facilitate dialogue, hopefully leading to knowledge exchange, and building relationships between stakeholders from different sectors.  

The aim is to identify three particularly significant challenges that are preventing the just transition to zero carbon homes and other buildings in London and then hold three additional workshops each focused on better understanding and developing solutions to these challenges. 

Follow this space where we will be sharing more about the findings and follow-up events.
