Event Details

CLASP (the NW’s local authority and public sector sustainability support service) is delivering a series of training and discussion sessions exclusively for elected members in the North West. The support is fully funded by the Environment Agency and the former North West Improvement and Efficiency Partnership.


The aim of the support is to empower elected members to support and encourage local progress towards a low carbon economy and more resilient local communities.  The support will particularly focus on identifying and explain new emerging issues, exploring the responsibilities of local authorities, and how members can make a difference.
