Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown
Professor Tim O’Riordan will give us his thoughts on the fusion of Sustainability within Regeneration. He has given some consideration as to how we can develop a vision and action plan for the Regeneration of Derry~Londonderry where Sustainability is the propulsive bloodstream.
SWG members are encouraged to come along and participate in this event so that we can all understand the opportunities provided to us by embedding the Sustainability agenda into our process.
The session is scheduled to take place from 9.30 – 12.00 on 11th December at The Everglades Hotel.
