The New Building, Peterborough Cathedral, Peterborough, PE11XS

Our impact on the world, as a growing human population, is undeniable, and action must be taken sooner, because there may not be a later.

Globally we are using more resources than the planet can renew each year. The scale and impact of climate change is unprecedented, and it’s the biggest challenge we have ever faced. We are already seeing the effects of rising temperatures with food insecurity and extreme weather conditions.

The Green Networking event, organised by environmental charity PECT and supported by Peterborough Cathedral, is an opportunity to meet likeminded organisations and professionals throughout the region who have an interest in the environment and sustainability.

Hear why climate change matters, what we can and are doing about it, and don’t miss the chance to get involved with discussions about making a difference for Peterborough and the planet.

Dr Toby Willison, Executive Director of Operations at the Environment Agency, will be the keynote speaker at this event with his talk: “What does the future look like with a changing climate”. Toby first worked on climate change 25 years ago while researching the impact land use change has on carbon fluxes. For the last five years, as Executive Director of Operations, Toby has been responsible for the Environment Agency’s activities to mitigate and respond to climate change.

This event coincides with the exhibition Gaia, an artwork by Luke Jerram, which will be displayed at Peterborough Cathedral between 19th August and the 15th September 2019. This 7m diameter sphere features detailed NASA imagery of the earth’s surface and is a fantastic opportunity to reflect on the fragile beauty of the earth that we need to protect and care for.

The Green Networking event has been made possible thanks to support from Roythornes Solicitors.

This is a FREE event. Access to the New Building is through the main entrance at Peterborough Cathedral. Drinks and vegetarian and vegan canapes will be available, and there will be free entrance to the Gaia exhibition at set times during the Eco Networking event with your ticket.

Booking is essential, you can book your ticket online here: Green Networking Event.
