Zero Carbon Bristol Conference at The Watershed

23-06-2010 13:22

Can we create enough food and green energy and reverse emissions and mitigate climate change? Can our cities and countryside restore balance and help each other as well as others?
Following a report by the Centre of Alternative Technologies extolling the possibilities of a Zero Carbon Britain, the Royal Agricultural College and Bristol’s Green Capital Initiative have joined forces to offer a day long program of seminars and networking opportunities for the region’s experts and enthusiasts.

Located at The Watershed on Bristol’s beautiful harbourside on the 29th June 2010 Zero Carbon Bristol looks at topics including green leadership, reducing emissions, renewable energy, green food and agroforestry.
Speakers include eco-pioneer Alistair Sawday, Peter Harper from the Centre of Alternative Technology, Dr Richard Baines from the Royal Agricultural College and Prof. Herbie Girdet, co-founder of the World Future Council – and more.
Zero Carbon Bristol builds on Bristol's Peak Oil Report, and the ambitious goals announced by Bristol City Council to reduce carbon emissions by 40% by 2020, aspirations to produce the City's energy renewably and to increase tree cover in the region. The conference is to take things a step further - to see if Zero Carbon is possible, desirable, and if so what do we need to do? It's a chance to learn, to discuss, perchance to plan.
