About this event

This summit will bring together leading experts from the worlds of finance, energy and the public sector to share views and ideas on what local authorities can actually do themselves and in partnership to inspire everyone to change the world.

We welcome delegates from across the public sector to learn from our speakers and each other and to bring their own thoughts to this hugely topical debate. This is a great opportunity to gather knowledge and contribute to the future for all residents of our planet.
