LGTAG Silver Jubilee Presidential Conference: Greening the Black

We are all celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen this year.

LGTAG’s jubilee is obviously not as long as our Queen’s reign of 70 years.  LGTAG’s 25 years have seen considerable successes and contributions to developing and improving Highways and Transportation nationally.

To celebrate this event, we are holding ‘Greening the Black’ our Presidential conference on 8 June 2022 at Church House, Westminster, London.

The event will explore the important and urgent issues of carbon reduction and nature recovery. We will discuss the critical challenges we face and the practicalities of their solution for a low carbon nature supporting future of highways and transportation.

The conference will be of particular interest to Councillors, Members. Directors and Heads of Service.  It will also be beneficial for asset, drainage and sustainability personnel.

During the event, you will hear from influential speakers who will share their experiences and aspirations that really make a difference in reducing our carbon footprint and increasing our sustainability and biodiversity considerations. Learn from sector leaders across carbon reduction and the natural environment.

The Under Secretary of State for the Department of Transport has been invited to be our keynote speaker and will discuss the work that the sector is likely to be asked to contribute to in the forthcoming year.

Many authorities have started on this journey and as such we can learn from those who have experience. This is a perfect opportunity to get back into the habit of meeting and rebuilding on your networks and see real people in a real place.

LGTAG’s President, Jon Munslow said: “Carbon reduction and nature recovery are the two key issues shaping our children’s future. Greening the Black is the conference to attend to understand what to do now and how to do it. With excellent and informative speakers and an exhibition showcasing innovations and practical solutions from across the industry.”
