Event: Greater Manchester Green Summit 2019

Tickets are now available for Greater Manchester’s second annual Green Summit on 25 March, which will include a zone dedicated to innovation and best practice for businesses.

Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham hosted his first Green Summit last year, which attracted over 600 delegates and feedback from more than 1,000 people.

The city region is the first in the UK to devise a science-based pathway to become carbon neutral, which has pushed its original 2050 target forward to 2038. This year’s Green Summit will declare the new target date and help to finalise a five year plan to put the city on the right path.

Best practice

The free event will provide the opportunity for people to speak to experts in the sector, to gain inspiration from peers and to find out what can be done as an individual, business and organisation to play a part in Greater Manchester’s climate change plans.

In addition to key-note speakers, three zones will be dedicated to innovation and best practice from businesses, communities and young people and leading public sector actors.

‘Job for us all’

Ahead of the event, Andy Burnham said: “This is a job for us all; businesses, community organisations, and citizens old and young. We all need to take action now, both individually and collectively, to deliver our aspirations.

“The 2018 Green Summit proved to me that Greater Manchester really cares about our environment and how our future will affect the next generation.”

The Summit will be held at The Lowry in Salford Quays. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. For more information, click here.
