Following his election, the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, announced his ambitions for making Greater Manchester one of the leading green cities in Europe.
To help realise these ambitions, he called for a landmark Green Summit, which was held on 21 March 2018.
The event brought together environmental experts, interest groups, partner agencies, academics and local people together to accelerate Greater Manchester’s green ambitions. The day included include headline speakers, workshops, q&a panels and more.
A second event is in the pipeline that will bring together findings from the first summit and shape the next steps for Greater Manchester.
