The Low Carbon Liverpool Debate
Mon 15 May 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Liverpool is rightly proud to be a place where world-renowned heritage sits alongside new developments and innovation that make it a truly 21st century international city. Recent changes have included a greater focus on the environment and a reduction in dangerous emissions, partly thanks to the move away from coal power. However, like most major conurbations, life in the city is still reliant on fuels that contribute to climate change.
Liverpool has hit its own targets to reduce emissions ahead of schedule, but in this event we ask what more can be done to make life here environmentally sustainable. The Low Carbon Liverpool project and the Mayor's Commission for Environmental Sustainability explored how the city can combine sustainability with quality and prosperity, but how can the new city region take further steps to become a global climate leader?
Join us for an engaging evening of debate and to hear from James Johnson, Liverpool LEP, Sustainable Energy Projects Manager, Alison Ball, Arup, Associate Environment and Sustainability, Carl Beer, Chief Executive, Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority, Dinah Dossor and John Garett, Transition Liverpool, and Dr Peter North, Reader in Alternative Economies, Department of Geography and Planing, School for Environmental Sciences, University of Liverpool.
