Now in its fifth year, Greater Manchester’s Green Summit 2022 will be held at The Lowry Theatre, Salford Quays on Monday 17th October, hosted by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.

This year, the summit will seek input from businesses, policymakers, local communities and industry on how the city-region should accelerate action against its five-year environment plan, rising to the key environmental challenges facing it from implementing new policy and future innovations to industry adaptation and individual lifestyle changes.

Event content will be split across six sessions covering updates on:

  • Natural Environment
  • Transport
  • Low Carbon – energy
  • Low Carbon – buildings
  • Sustainable Consumption and Production – circular economy / waste
  • Sustainable Lifestyles

The event will also focus on engaging young people around climate change, a youth-specific event strand will be held during the Green Summit, and will be opened by the Mayor.

The Green Summit offers a great opportunity to meet and network with people who are determined to drive change and help the city-region meet its ambitious goals for the environment, with networking and exhibition stands open until the end of the event.
