Drop-in sessions over 3 mornings
for local invited guests
AM drop-in sessions | 3-5 Nov 2020 | Register now || Following 2019’s Low Carbon Homes event, the city has committed to developing a retrofit housing plan in time for the 2020 event. This follows the adoption of new science-based climate change targets to become a zero-carbon city by 2038, and the creation of a zero carbon framework by the Manchester Climate Change Agency. This years’ event focuses on the actions and resources required to deliver the retrofit plan across the city and wider city region, now set to the backdrop of COVID-19 recovery.
Northern Housing Consortium (NHC) are running a Manchester event on 3rd November, focusing on recovery and the net-zero decarbonisation agenda. We know our contacts and stakeholders in Manchester may want to attend this event as well as Low Carbon Homes Manchester, so both Low Carbon Homes and the NHC are working together to make recordings of our events available to those who would like them. Please contact us or contact NHC if you’d like to receive the content from either event and we’ll send you a link/update as soon as it’s available.
