Plymouth City Council is asking ‘what next for climate change’ in an all-day seminar to be held at the Council House on Friday October 29.
The event is open to anyone with an interest in tackling climate change. It will look at the future of the city and consider new investment opportunities. The event is part of the city’s Local Carbon Framework project, an initiative designed to set out what the city is planning to do to tackle climate change, reduce its carbon footprint and save energy,
Specialists and Climate Change Commission members Dr Andy Phippen and Sarah Holmes will discuss what a low carbon economy might mean for the city and what the legal implications might be.
Helen Pineo from the Local Government Group (formerly the Local Government Association) will consider the political issues that might affect both local and national policy while the council’s sustainability team will discuss what the Local Carbon Framework will look like, what recently announced investment programmes might mean for Plymouth and how these can be used to encourage growth in the city without adding to its carbon footprint.
