A cleaner greener neighbourhood for all - and a special tour of County Hall

Dear all

I'm looking forward to the Forum on this Thursday 27th June at 7pm. It's at Sustainable Ventures, which is based on the fifth floor of County Hall. Quite apart from the exciting agenda, the venue is very much worth coming to - it's a remarkable piece of retro architecture which has been rarely seen since the demise of the GLC.

In fact we have generously been offered a tour by Andrew Wordsworth, the chief executive of Sustainable Ventures - to see the space and hear more about Europe's largest climate tech cluster. The tour will start at 6.30. If you wish to attend, please email a.s.a.p

To access the Forum and the tour, come in through the central doors on the road behind County Hall - Belvedere Road - and take the lift to the fifth floor.

There will be refreshments after the meeting, and the terrace will be open.

Come and engage with local leaders in the climate space, participate in group discussions, and discover how you can contribute to creating a fairer and greener neighbourhood. The BID, alongside other local partners, will be attending, and the area's Net Zero Programme Lead will be updating on the activity happening across South Bank and Waterloo. 

The full agenda is below.

I hope to see you there!

Giles Goddard
