Clean, healthy and sustainable Surrey conference a success

On 13 November we welcomed around 100 delegates to the University’s ‘Clean, healthy and sustainable Surrey’ conference.

The aim of the conference was to bring key colleagues together from across Surrey, to share their experiences and to develop new partnerships to deliver action.

We had a range of interesting talks from:

  • Mike Goodman, who outlined the vision of Surrey County Council
  • Paul Kemp from the South East Energy Hub giving the national and regional picture
  • Dr Chris Jones explained the ‘Clean healthy and sustainable Surrey’ initiative, including some new ‘Surrey Living Lab’ grants
  • Professor Ravi Silva talked about the range of exciting new technologies that can help meet the challenges
  • Cat Reeby officially launched the Surrey Energy Partnership.

There was then a panel discussion including Jennie Pell from EM3, Sean Rendall from ThamesWey Group, Joy Aloor from Siemens and Richard Essex from the Surrey Climate Commission.

We were particularly pleased to see such a wide range of delegates and partner organisations attending, with delegates from many of the local borough councils, large and small businesses, charitable and health sectors.

Many thanks for making this such an interesting and effective event.
