UCS sustainability conference to focus on New Anglia LEP Green Economy Pathfinder project
STUDENTS at the University Campus Suffolk (UCS) School of Business, Enterprise and Leadership are staging a special conference to engage local firms with a key “green” economy initiative.
The Sustainability: Take Control event, to be held at Trinity Park, Ipswich, in March, will focus on the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) Green Economy Pathfinder project.
It will give local businesses an opportunity to share details of what they’re doing now, and what they plan to do in future, in order to seize the opportunities provided by the new green economy.
Following a networking breakfast, local business leaders will give several short presentations before delegates are invited to take part in a professionally facilitated “Open Space” discussion, with the event, on March 2, running from 7am until noon.
It will include an update on New Anglia’s Green Economy Pathfinder, which is working throughout Suffolk and Norfolk to identify and highlight examples of businesses contributing to the development of the green economy in the region.
