People are encouraged to take part from the whole community, reflecting all ages, genders, and cultures, the aim is to reach a conclusion about how to reduce Luton’s carbon emissions to net zero.

Laura Church, corporate director for place and infrastructure, said: “Climate Change is such an important issue that we want to make sure that as many people as possible can be involved in the event and so have moved the date.

"However, we want to keep the pace going and so will meet with a small number of interested organisations to talk about the Citizens Assembly in advance”.
