Thematic hearings

Thematic hearings (meetings) were used as part of the evidence gathering about the steps that can be taken to achieve net-zero carbon in Devon.  These hearings ran during November and December 2019.  Each hearing focused on different parts of our society that produce most of the emissions.

The following hearings were available to watch live on the Devon Climate Emergency Facebook page.
