On 20 June a day-long conference will bring together a range of key public, private and third sector stakeholders to collaborate for accelerating wider public understanding and engagement in delivering solutions to the local and global emergency caused by generating toxic pollution of our cities, towns and communities while adding to climate change as a result of burning fossil fuels. As West Midlands Mayor Andy Street has said, this calls for a clean air revolution.
It will address implementing the Powering West Midlands Growth-A Regional Approach to Clean Energy Innovation a strategic roadmap report to replacing 50% of the £10 billion spent on consuming fossil fuel based , power, gas and transport fuel by 2030 towards 100% by 2050 mainly generated locally.
The urgent challenge is to address its impact while prioritising understanding for implementing common solutions i.e. clean energy with innovative clean, green smart technologies and transport.
Complementing this is the imperative for energy, water and other material resource efficiency that can reduce 25% consumption, saving money and creating new local business and jobs, including addressing fuel poverty.
The West Midlands Mayor’s Clean-Green Future Challenge will address the increasing amount of issues related to local atmospheric and global greenhouse pollution providing workshop opportunity to share and define ground-breaking initiatives.
