UEA and Broadland District Council team up for green champions event

A major initiative to identify climate change champions in towns and villages across the Broadland area is to be rolled-out next month.

Broadland District Council has teamed up with experts from the Low Carbon Innovation centre at the University of East Anglia to find like-minded people who will be ambassadors for a greener lifestyle and inspire the communities they live in to do the same. Groups interested in attending are being urged to book their place before May 6. The council's climate change officer Katy Hughes said organisers were looking for groups representing up to ten Broadland communities to attend the morning-long event, which is planned for the ZICER building at the UEA on May 14, starting at 9.30am.

Speakers lined up for the event include the UEA's director of low carbon innovation Dr Keith Tovey, For more information contact Rachel Leggett at Broadland on 01603 430143 or Matthew Taylor at UEA on 01603 592838.
