About the Open Forum

New date: Thursday 27 January 2022, online and limited in-person, 6:30pm to 8pm  

Do you have a question about how we’ll make Westminster greener and cleaner by tackling climate change together? Join us at our next Open Forum to have your questions answered, and hear from the Leader of the Council, cabinet members and senior officers about how we’ll tackle climate change together.   

This Open Forum will take place both online and in-person and we are focusing a large part of the discussion on the theme of a greener and cleaner Westminster. We are keen to discuss our work to address the climate emergency, air quality, recycling, and other environmental issues that affect your life in Westminster. Find out more about this work on our Climate Change webpages

Our Open Forum is available to everyone. However, for your safety and comfort we will have a limited capacity at our in-person event and we will be asking you to register in order to attend in person. There are no limits on how many people can join us online. Whether in person or online you will be able to ask questions live during the event. We will answer as many as possible that are submitted during the event, and we will provide a Q&A document containing those questions not answered after the meeting.  

If you can’t make it on the night, you’ll be able to watch a recording of the event here afterwards.
