Partner at Cheltenham office, Paul Fong, was delighted to address the audience attending the Gloucestershire Climate Change Summit.
Gloucestershire County Council jointly hosted a Climate Change Summit on 21 May with GFirst Local Enterprise Partnership, welcoming feedback from public, private and community sectors.
An audience of around 120 passionate and innovative people from across the county joined the discussion at the University of Gloucestershire to talk about taking action on climate change.
The summit welcomed speakers from a variety of different points of view, including representatives from the planning, infrastructure, and construction industries, Public Health, young people and sustainable energy experts.
The day looked at how everyone in the county can contribute to creating a sustainable future, calling on communities to help deliver the ambitions of the Gloucestershire Energy Strategy. As a result of the discussions the county council will be updating their Climate Change Strategy for the county.
Paul was asked to talk on what is the best practice in the shaping of places to live and work, planning and new development. His speech made reference to the benefit of eco towns and was received favourably and with great interest.
