The Fit for the Future II conference, the follow up to the first event back in March 2016, will bring LEPs and their partners together for another opportunity to:
Share good practice on LEP activity pertaining to energy, the low carbon economy, climate resilience and the environment.
Network with fellow LEPs about the above and identify collaborative opportunities.
Hear from BEIS on their national policy work and how they can support your LEP.
Hear how other organisations can support you to develop your LEP’s low carbon and climate change planning.
Discover the results of the second Fit for the Future national climate change and low carbon benchmarking exercise, drawing on the first publication in early 2016, to be published soon. Also find out the results of similar benchmarking exercises for Combined Authorities (CAs) and City Regions (CRs).
Discover the findings and outcomes of recent workshops convened by Regeneris related to the low carbon aspects of European Regional Development Funding and how these can help inform future funding opportunities.
Ultimately the event aims to keep the momentum going on this agenda to show why embracing the climate change agenda can stimulate local growth, provide more job opportunities and strengthen economic resilience in local areas.
17 October 2017, the event will not start earlier than 10:00 and conclude no later than 16:00. Lunch will be provided.
