This joint event with One Voice Wales asks: How can our Welsh communities move successfully into a sustainable future?
** Please note, this event will have simultaneous translation and will be presented on Teams.
We are all working hard to create a sustainable future for the next generations. But how can our Welsh communities play a greater role in this difficult challenge?
We are fortunate to have keynote speakers from Welsh Government who are working on a shared vision about the way Wales can deliver changes needed for net zero. They will also be providing information on the Just Transition movement which is not only about addressing climate change but also about building a more inclusive and prosperous future for all communities.
We also have speakers from One Voice Wales and Friends of the Earth Cymru who will be looking at Biodiversity issues and Climate Change toolkits.
Planning Aid Wales will provide information about the new regime of Strategic Development Plans that will impact our communities in terms of future sustainable development.
We will also have the opportunity to focus on a few case-studies where we can learn from those working in local communites with an interest in renewable energy, allotments and growing and Place Plan projects. All of these communities are dealing with their own climate change challenges and we can learn from their innovative approaches.
This will be an interesting event for all with an interest in Planning, Climate Change and Biodiversity. There will be an opportunity for open discussion between all delegates and speakers.
