This workshop will feature:
- An overview of online climate engagement tools, provided by City of London staff,
- A walk-through of Project Neutral, an online platform to calculate your household's carbon footprint in five minutes,
- A crash-course from the London Environmental Network on how to get involved in London's environmental sector, and
