They aren’t saying how they are deciding who has the “honour” of attending. Nice and transparent as ever. And it’s a great way to build momentum, isn’t it – to restrict what is supposed to be the pre-eminent climate event of the year, that builds passion and networking, to a Chosen Few. Genius.
Manchester: A Certain Future Conference 2013
Monday 4th March 2013
1.30pm – 5pm
Four Piccadilly Place, Manchester
‘What’s great, what’s next and
what’s needed for change?’
Dear friends and colleagues,
This March, during UK Climate Week, there will be a series of important, Manchester-based, climate change events, beginning with our annual stakeholder conference for the city’s climate change action plan, Manchester: A Certain Future.
Please join us on Monday 4th March to hear Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, introduce a series of presentations on city strategies for adapting to, and mitigating against climate change. There will also be roundtable sessions on how we can deliver real progress against our plans and targets, as well as an update on our city’s newly refreshed action plan for cutting carbon and making Manchester more resilient in the face of future shifts.
There will be roundtables on buildings, energy, transport, green and blue spaces, sustainable consumption and the culture and governance of climate action in Manchester. The sessions will aim to capture the projects and programmes that are planned or in place to deliver against our climate change targets. We will also explore the resources needed to make progress, and how we can tackle, together, any barriers that stand in our way.
Places are strictly limited so please register your interest by filling in the registration form and sending us a few simple details. We will then be allocating places to delegates by the end of January. Places will be allocated carefully to ensure we have a good range of delegates from across a range of sectors and interests.
More details will be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime if you have any questions or if you are interested in running your own, specific event during Climate Week under the Manchester: A Certain Future banner, please contact us by emailing: email@example.com
