Climate Change and Coventry
For our March meeting CovSoc are focussing on climate change and our city. We have two speakers:
Tony McNally is Managing Director of Climate Change Solutions Ltd. which was established in 2003 at Coventry University’s TechnoCentre.
Tony has been continuously involved with environmental /climate change organisations for near 30 years and in 1991 co-organised the first Midlands Environmental Business Conference held at the NEC. He also organised and chaired the first Coventry Climate Challenge Conference held in 2001 at Coombe Abbey. He is the cofounder and Director of Heart of England Community Energy solar farm near Stratford upon Avon with 60,000 solar panels.
Tony will talk on the subject, “Why COP 26 failed the 2030 Climate Emergency Challenge – Can it be Saved in 2022?”
Bret Willers is Head of Sustainability & Climate Change at the City Council. He will talk on the subject “Delivering a Sustainable City – Rhetoric versus Action”.
Cities around the world have signed up to ambitious targets to deliver Zero Carbon without an idea of how they are going to get there. Bret will outline the challenges a City like Coventry has to overcome to be able to deliver a sustainable zero carbon City and what it has achieved to date.
His presentation will firstly set the context and present the challenges facing cities like Coventry, followed by an outline of what the City is doing now and planning for the future.
Monday 14th March 2022 at 7.30 p.m. at the Litten Tree Building, Warwick Road.
