In recent years, citizens and policy makers have grown increasingly alarmed at the spread and deepening of the climate crisis. In thinking through how best to respond, there is an emerging understanding that collaboration between, and behavioural changes by, governments, businesses and also individual citizens is essential if the crisis is to be stemmed (United Nations Environment Programme, 2021).

This report contributes to an emerging body of evidence concerning UK local level interactions between individual citizens and powerholders concerning the climate emergency.

The research for the report was funded by Nottingham Trent University (NTU), and is part of a collaborative project led by a team of researchers at NTU and officers from Nottingham City Council (NCC). The project aims are to contribute to the shaping of Nottingham’s Carbon Neutral 2028 Charter and its associated Carbon Neutral Nottingham 2028 Action Plan (CN28). It is part of an extended research programme which began in 2021 with Phase 1. The current report presents an analysis of the findings from Phase 2 fieldwork using eight online focus groups with 36 Nottingham residents that were carried out between March and July 2022.
