About this Event

As we enter a new decade, I'm delighted to invite you to our next Perth Ambassador event on Friday 24th January 2020 which will focus on our ambition to make Perth the most sustainable small city in Europe.

Perth City Development Board has developed an updated Perth City Plan which focuses on addressing the key challenges and opportunities for our City and wider region over the next two decades. I'm pleased that just before the festive break, Perth and Kinross Council endorsed the new plan.

At the core of the City Plan, there is a clear commitment to address climate change and an ambition to make Perth carbon neutral by 2040. At the same meeting on 19 December, the Council approved a Climate Emergency Action Plan. This is designed to be the basis for engagement with stakeholders to produce a shared vision and action programme, and to deliver a resilient and net zero carbon Perth & Kinross region.

One of the key milestones this year will be a Perth Climate Change Summit in May 2020 to showcase local best practices and stimulate private-public sector collaboration. Our Ambassador event later this month will focus on how Ambassadors and the business community can help shape and drive this ambitious agenda forward.

Thank you for your support to date in promoting our new Perth narrative locally and regionally, as well as to a national and international audience.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next breakfast event and would especially encourage you to bring along new potential Ambassadors you may know from your own networks.
