Let’s go greener

Will a more resilient, diverse and greener local economy help Bath and North Somerset plan for a difficult future – and should the area be encouraging the development of green skills? That’s the subject of a webinar planned for next month.

Residents and businesses from across the district are invited to join the online discussion on Monday 5 October at 5pm.

Council leader, Dine Romero, will be joined by panellists Chris George Assistant Principal, Business and Technical Skills Bath College, Rob Dawson from the council’s Economic Development team and Chris Mordaunt, the council’s Housing Standards and Improvement manager, to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the green economy and skills sector.

Councillor Romero said: “The impact of Covid-19 on our local economy has been hard hitting, affecting many businesses and individuals. As we rebuild, we need to enable a more resilient, diverse and greener local economy to emerge.  One that helps us work towards our climate change goals and our commitment to become carbon neutral by 2030. Working with our partners, we’re creating a recovery and renewal programme which puts these objectives at its heart with a strong emphasis on the development of green skills across the district.”
