For NGOs, Civil Society Organisations, and interested members of the public:

Sometimes “sustainability” can be a hard package to sell. The climate related events and activity we have witnessed over the past year have moved this to the forefront of public awareness. Any adequate response to Climate Change is going to involve every aspect of our lives. As challenging as the future may now appear, we now have the opportunity to link the sustainability agenda firmly to public awareness and policy change.  Find out how at this event!
