Sustainability professionals from across Nottingham attend the Green Partnership’s quarterly meetings to share best practice and to find opportunities to work together to accelerate Nottingham’s growth in a sustainable way.
Key agenda items for the summer’s meeting were, Nottingham 2050 and Nottingham Good Food Partnership
The partnership is developing a sustainability plan called Nottingham 2050, which will set an ambitious vision for the city. The plan covers six themes – Biodiversity, Energy, Food, Transport, Waste and Water and will set out a range of ideas to encourage and inspire sustainability within Nottingham.
The group are currently asking for citizens, businesses and the voluntary sector to take part in an online consultation to ensure that the themes within the plan are accurate for the needs of the city.
