Town Centre Action Plan Review Series – Climate

TP’s 2021 – 2022 CPD events are centred on the Town Centre Action Plan Review recommendations and in this fourth event in the series, we will focus on the theme of Climate.

We will be joined by Dr Emilie Wadsworth, Director of Development at the Green Action Trust who will provide us with the context around how we work towards achieving Net Zero in our towns and places. We will then get the chance to learn from case studies of examples in practice.

Learn and contribute with guest speakers’ insights and example projects; this session aims to help towns and place stakeholders see the impact and importance of climate change and share ideas for what they can do.
