The day will feature a keynote address from Sir Jonathan Porritt – renowned sustainability activist and writer on how we can still achieve economic growth and progress for the South East economy through clean technology, new models of economic growth, investment and innovation.
You will hear from Andrew Griffith MP as UK’s Net Zero Business Champion and bring together a number of local South East representatives through a series of debate panels showcasing existing activity to deliver clean growth and to consider where the future opportunities lie for the South East in this new economy.
This session will educate, inform and consider the role we can play in the public and private sector to support the transition to Net Zero, to meet the UK targets in place and how we can embrace this moment to recover and grow a future economy in a sustainable and considered way.
This session will precede the SELEP AGM which provides an opportunity to learn more about the work of the South East LEP over 2020-21 and, in particular, how the team has supported the South East business community during the pandemic and into recovery.
The South East LEP connects with business leaders, public sector decision makers, senior education and skills professionals, to encourage growth and investment in the South East.
