Workshop options

1. The FAB city concept - In June, Plymouth became the first UK Fab City, joining an international network of forward-thinking, progressive cities that have pledged to produce what they consume by 2054. This is a hugely ambitious and self-imposed target that will require a considerable shift in paradigm to re-localise supply chains, embrace more circular models of production, as well as empowering citizens with digital, technological and fabrication skills to meet the existential challenges that climate change and urbanisation pose. Fab City is a people-centred movement, which will build on the many great initiatives we already have in our city and we look forward to welcoming you to this workshop to give more information and open the discussion up to the people!

2. Hosted by Keynote speaker David Lawrence and Manda Brookman- This session will look to help you develop a response to the environment and climate emergency - a practical workshop to start building an action plan.'

3. Sue Dann and Paul Elliot from Plymouth City Council -
