RESIDENTS are invited to a conference for their say on the borough's climate change strategy.
Brent Council is holding a summit to launch its climate change strategy and action plan.
Residents can come along to help decide how the borough should work to limit climate change and prepare for its effects during the next few decades.
The strategy, which is believed to be the first borough-wide community based strategy in London, reports that Brent could be hit by transport disruption, premature deaths, water shortages and flood damage to businesses and homes by 2050.
