As part of the event, Head of Sustainability Charmaine Morrell and various professional and academic staff will be discussing topics included in the UN's Climate Change Conference COP27.
The day will include key-note speakers and themed workshops on topics such as the climate emergency, biodiversity and sustainable shopping. There will also be a panel consisting of local organisation representatives who will give insight into their work towards sustainability across Nottingham.

Attendees will learn about COP27s importance and initiatives in the local area and beyond, whilst focusing on the practical actions we can take for “people and the planet”
