Join us for an evening’s discussion on building a greener future across our region. In the light of the government’s recent commitment to cut carbon emissions by 78% by 2035, building a greener economy is key. Our keynote speaker is Katherine Bennett, CBE, Chair of the Western Gateway, a cross-border economic partnership with a focus on inclusive and clean economic growth. The partnership covers an area reaching the Swansea – Cheltenham – Salisbury triangle.
We will also hear from other experts and leaders in this area:
- Colin Chick, Executive Director for Economy, Environment and Infrastructure at Gloucestershire County Council, on the bid to host the World’s first fusion reactor producing electricity in Gloucestershire.
- Robert Moreton, developing plans for the Buckover Garden Village on the Tortworth Estate in South Gloucestershire
