This event was run by the first incarnation of CovCAN, which was then called CoventryCAN. This report is copied from an announcement on CWLEP. The event took place in Coventry Council House during the afternoon of Saturday 11 March 2017 to celebrate International Women’s Day.
To celebrate International Women’s Day as part of Coventry’s Go Green Week, CoventryCAN has brought together a panel of inspirational Coventry women who are working hard to create a more sustainable future for our region and beyond. Join us to hear their stories of what they do and why they do it…
