Description

Many of us want Edinburgh to become one of the greenest cities, radically cutting its greenhouse gas emissions and its resource use. We expect that by being greener we can improve our quality of life as well. The Sustainable Business Initiative at the University of Edinburgh, is co-hosting a meeting with Friends of the Earth Edinburgh on Edinburgh's 2020 sustainability plan to discuss this.

We invite you, who hold interest in Edinburgh's sustainable development, to discuss the future of our city. A panel of 4 will engage with all present participants on issues which centre around Edinburgh Council's "Sustainable Edinburgh 2020" plan, primarily the 42% reduction in carbon emissions by 2020, and how we can get there. The panel consists of Councillor Lesley Hinds (Environment and Transport), Secretary at Edinburgh Trade Union Council Des Loughney, Johanna Carrie from Transition Edinburgh, and Victoria Barby from Scotland's Climate Change Buisness Delivery Group.

We invite you to attend this open participatory dialogue, representing your organisation and voicing your views in the discussion. Additionally, we invite you to pass this message to others who recognise the value in attending. This meeting will hear what plans are already being made, and what actions are being taken by different sectors of the community and, most importantly, what we have to do to raise our ambitions and hit those targets.
