LEDNet Work Programme

 
LEDNet meets on five occasions throughout the year to facilitate collaboration between LEDNet and its members. LEDNet Directors discuss key areas of work LEDNet has carried out thus far and outline the priority areas for focus going forward. LEDNet main meetings in 2021/22 are scheduled for the following dates, focusing on the following topic areas:
  • Thursday 20 May, air quality and transport 
  • Thursday 29 July, climate change
  • Wednesday 6 October, green spaces
  • Monday 13 December, digital innovation
  • Thursday 24 February 2022, waste and resources 

LEDNet’s five clusters drive forward the bulk of the work relevant to its theme and varies between advocacy, research and sharing of best practice. Each cluster has a designated cluster lead, led by a LEDNet Director, and consists of cluster members, ranging from Directors to borough officers, with input from relevant external organisations.         

Air Quality and Transport

LEDNet’s air quality and transport cluster aims to tackle London’s air pollution and challenges relating to behaviour change, public health and sustainable travel. The cluster hosts four workshops and meets a further four times throughout the year to gage the London-wide challenges on specific topic areas and identify the potential solutions LEDNet could pursue to address the challenges. 

Climate Change

LEDNet’s climate cluster aims to support London in meeting its net zero carbon emissions targets by coordinating a strategic approach to tackle the climate emergency. The cluster engages with key stakeholders leading on climate work, including London Councils’ Lead Chief Executive Advisors for Environment, the Transport and Environment Committee (TEC), the GLA and the borough leads of the seven themes who oversee the delivery of the seven collective climate ambitions. 

Digital Innovation

LEDNet’s digital innovation cluster aims to support London boroughs in addressing their transport and environmental challenges through digital and technological solutions. The cluster will look to identify innovative digital solutions to challenges for all London boroughs, ranging from a central hub containing key performance data to piloting smart software interventions in boroughs.  

Green Spaces

LEDNet’s digital innovation cluster aims to support London boroughs in addressing their transport and environmental challenges through digital and technological solutions. The cluster will look to identify innovative digital solutions to challenges for all London boroughs, ranging from a central hub containing key performance data to piloting smart software interventions in boroughs.  

Waste and Resources

LEDNet’s waste and resources cluster aims to tackle London’s waste challenges and support the ambition for London to become a zero-waste city. Key areas the cluster are working on include responding to the Government’s resources and waste strategy consultations, addressing fly-tipping in London and encouraging the public to shift to a more sustainable lifestyle, where reuse and repair are central to a daily routine.
