The Green Economy
Being European Green Capital puts the future economy centre stage and raises many questions: What is the green economy? How might we achieve it? Who will take us there? Is a truly green economy achievable and can we afford it? This panel event debates issues such as growth and the environment; priorities; the changes needed in business practice, government, education, society, individual behaviour; green businesses and green workers; modern green lifestyles; green economy and leadership; likely winners and losers; the key players; and what politicians, business leaders and other opinion shapers need to do to drive the changes necessary to get us to a green economy. Speakers include:
Alan Bailey (Chair of Low Carbon South West)
Griffin Carpenter (New Economics Foundation)
Professor Molly Scott Cato MEP
The event will be chaired by Margaret Heffernan.
