Greater Manchester has set a target to be carbon neutral by 2038: the most ambitious target in the UK and key to the city-region’s development plans and local industrial strategy. Reducing carbon consumption is a key challenge for cities all over the world.

What does it mean for infrastructure and how we develop the city? Public and private sector leaders will need to work together to create the sustainable communities of the future, creating greener, safer spaces for people to live and enabling the low carbon economy to thrive.

Speakers include:

  • Craig Morley, Energy Manager, Bruntwood
  • Stephen Willacy, Chief City Architect, Municipality of Aarhus
  • Evagelos Korais, Principal Engineer, Ramboll
  • Jonny Sadler, Programme Director, Manchester Climate Change Agency
  • Steve Connor, CEO of Creative Concern

Chair: Kasper de Graaf, Director of Images&Co and Partnerships Director, Design Manchester
