This conference will demonstrate how Cornwall has taken a lead in understanding and delivering sustainability in the County, connecting to leading changes in agritech, education, health, energy, and reducing inequality, that will deliver a more sustainable future, and with examples of these connecting Cornwall to:
G7 including their focus on promoting future prosperity, protecting people’s health and global resilience; building back better to protect the planet, and shared values on democracy and human rights; as well as
COP26 and the priorities identified by Alok Sharma for adaptation and resilience, nature, energy transition, accelerating the move to zero-carbon and green finance.
The morning will be key-note speakers on the above key topics and will focus on the solutions and the way forward, the challenges we think are already clear. In the afternoon we will hold online masterclasses again focused on solutions and the way forward.
We are holding this on World Ocean day, the Tuesday before the G7 starts on Friday, as this is clearly a key issue for Cornwall for food, tourism and floating renewable generation to work alongside the existing solar and wind resources in the County.
We are delighted to announce the following headline speakers:HRH Prince Charles, Sir Tim Smit, Hugo TagholmandGeorge Eustice MP.
