2013-12-10 - Liverpool Green Partnership Event

On Friday the Liverpool Green Partnership hosted a plenary session at Blackburne House.

LGP Co-chair Andy Hull gave an introduction, before providing a a summary of the LGP's recent work, including the draft Terms of Reference.

Then we heard from the Liverpool Food Alliance, who talked about the succesful bid to designate Liverpool as a Sustainable Food City, outlining their plans and discussing the benefits of locally grown, sustainable food.

Next, the Friends of the Flyover outlined their plans to turn the Churchill Flyover in central Liverpool into a pedestrian and cycle friendly promenade that would link up the city centre.

Building on the results of our survey, the morning then broke into a series of roundtable sessions with topics focusing on the key areas from our recent Environmental Audit of Liverpool. The topics were; Eco-Innovation and Employment, Energy, Green Infrastructure, Sustainable Food, Transport and Waste Management and Recycling. 

What followed was an hour of fascinating dicussions resulting in the identification of 3 key priorities for each area that Liverpool and the LGP can take forward in order to make our city one which is world class for sustainability.  However, what became immediately apparent is the cross-cutting nature of these themes, as well as how much is already going on in Liverpool.  

Now, the LGP will reflect on your priorities and outcomes, and ensure that they filter into our own thinking and strategic work over the coming months.
