About the Event
Ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26, scheduled to take place in Glasgow in November, Newcastle University and the North of Tyne Combined Authority have joined forces to host the region’s inaugural Green Economy Summit.
By bringing together global experts, industry and, public and social sector leaders who are already driving change, the aim of this event is to explore how our region can lead the charge towards Net Zero and an economy powered by clean jobs and growth. It will showcase our world class R&D, testing and manufacturing expertise alongside our plans for the future of communities and places, and the ways in which we can create jobs, skills and engagement opportunities for a truly inclusive transition.
Featuring a keynote address by Rt Hon Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP, Minister for Business, Energy and Clean Growth, the Summit will be a must-attend for anyone with an interest in our climate challenge, and the significant opportunity it represents for the region.
The opening keynote will be followed by three parallel workshops on themes closely aligned to current government priorities and the levelling up agenda. These workshops will set out the underlying trends, new investments and future priorities for clean energy and offshore wind, future mobility and net zero transport, and rural net zero.
The Driving the Electric Revolution Industrialisation Centres Chair, Matt Boyle OBE is a speaker within the Future Mobility and Net-Zero Transport workshop. The workshop will discuss how the region is leading the way in low carbon vehicles and smart mobility solutions in a way that builds local supply chains and maximises our rural, urban and coastal geography.
