The 2017 Public Sector Conference will bring together a national collaboration of public sector decision makers who are accountable for delivering carbon reduction policies, strategies and targets across UK cities, towns, local authorities, estates, assets and facilities.
The Conference will explore the vital role the public sector plays in city, region and community developments, as well as ensuring local authorities and public sector organisations are seizing sustainable opportunities and meeting carbon reduction policies.
Attended by 250+ professionals, delegates will gain knowledge and advice on achieving energy savings and understand new technologies, innovations and solutions.
The agenda on the day will cover best practice and insight from those leading on the agenda, with a focus on:
Sessions will be practical, providing case studies of celebrated successful projects whilst uncovering the challenges and opportunities facing city leaders and major stakeholders. A breakfast roundtable, keynote speeches, interactive workshop sessions and master classes will provide delegates with an engaging and informative day.
Hear from senior policy makers from national and local government about the importance of sustainable practices and climate change resilience for the UK economy and the opportunities which can be learnt from Smart Cities developing around the world.

Please note the event is for public sector delegates only, including local government, emergency services, central government departments, NHS, education and higher education sector.
The continued success of the Conference, and high levels of attendance, are partly because attendance of the Conference is strictly limited to public sector professionals only. This gives attendees a high level of confidence and creates an environment focused on the learning and sharing of best practice.
