Greenprint Forum Event details:-
A quick reminder of our forthcoming Greenprint Forum event – our first in person since the pandemic – on the theme of Climate Resilient Communities, to be held 18:00-21:00 next Monday evening the 21st of November, at the council’s offices situated at East Suffolk House, Riduna Park, Melton. Registration is still open for this event; registration can be done quickly and easily online via: Greenprint Forum event registration - My East Suffolk
The forum will be an opportunity for attendees to hear about the challenges faced by communities in the face of climate change, how communities are making positive changes towards resilience to face these challenges, and what the aspirations of our communities are. Our speakers are Dr Alison Pooley, University of Suffolk; and Joolz Thompson, of iFarm. The full programme is available here: Climate-Resilient-Communities-21-November-2022.pdf (eastsuffolk.gov.uk)
As part of the event, we will also provide an opportunity for attendees to network and meet with relevant stallholders. If you would like a space for a stall to highlight what your organisation or community are active on, please email my colleague Natasha Spruce (copied in) to book a stallholder space.
And even if you can’t make it yourself please do let others in your network know; the event is free and open to all.
