The first plenary session at this year's conference looked at carbon targets and was chaired by Phil Korbel from Carbon Literacy Project.

It featured the Mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham; University of Manchester’s Activities & Development Officer, Lizzy Haughton and academics from Manchester Metropolitan University and University of Manchester.

They explored the 2038 carbon target for Greater Manchester including the steps to make it the “greenest city region in the UK”, but most importantly, the role of universities and colleges in accelerating social change. They all echoed their critical role in leading the debate and demonstrating leadership in the sector through an agenda of integrity that is not politically driven.
