Commitment to Sustainable South Tyneside

South Tyneside Council will be reaffirming its commitment to a greener, cleaner future with a Climate Summit Week next month.

The council will be hosting a programme of events and activities for the community, businesses and schools from 1-5 November to tie in with COP-26 – the UN’s 26th annual climate change conference.

It will focus on actions the council is taking to meet its ambitious carbon reduction targets, as well as how residents and businesses can play their part in tackling climate change.
