This lively forum brings together people from a wide variety of backgrounds, including councillors and council officers.
The forum will be given an update by representatives of the Council on what progress has been made in implementing the Climate emergency resolution that was passed overwhelmingly by the Council in May of this year. We expect to hear more details about appointing a paid Climate Coordinator.
There will also be a presentation by Envelop homes, which was set up to build high quality homes built to low-energy Passivhaus standards, and are smart and promote clean, sustainable living.
There will no doubt be discussions about the Sinfin incinerator, updates from Extinction Rebellion, the Derby trees group and also on the forthcoming climate strikes on September 20 (See UK Student Climate Network)
