It may feel in the UK that focus is shifting to the green economy - with global recognition of the need and desire for renewable energy, wider recognition of the circular economy, and international acceptance of the need to limit our impact - but are we seeing an upheaval of established environmental actions?

Who is leading global efforts in sustainability? Who will enter the 2020s at the forefront of renewables? Who is ahead of the curve in implementation and innovation in the circular economy? Who has the most forward-thinking policies and plans to limit climate change?

With speakers representing Europe, Asia and the United States of America, join us for an evening debate investigating some of the major global players and their efforts towards paradigm shifts in carbon, energy and resource.


Europe – Will the wide European commitment to the UN Sustainable Development goals and the EU’s 2030 targets of 40% reduction in carbon emissions place Europe at the forefront of sustainability? Might Brexit have wider implications for European environmental progress?

Asia – Will one of the Four Asian Tigers step into the USA’s shoes as market leader in renewable energy? How does China’s first ‘green’ 5 year plan work with their intentions for huge economic growth?

USA – How much effect will Trump’s withdrawal from the Climate Change Agreement - alongside the Whitehouse’s announced support for coal – have on US dominance, with strong industry and regional voices against these and continued consumer demand?


Speakers to be announced
