Bridging the rural/urban divide with green economic opportunities for Birmingham & our Local Enterprise Partners


Tuesday 25 January




Pearson Suite at The Pavilion, Moor Lane, Perry Barr, Birmingham, B6 7AA.


Birmingham environmental partnership supported by Birmingham City University, Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Group and Sustainability West Midlands.

Target audience

The event is for business, local government and voluntary sector organisations

The event itself

Have the concepts of ‘urban’ and ‘rural’ passed their sell-by date and do they hinder the pursuit of a more joined up and integrated approach to environmental issues in today’s complex West Midlands’ economy?

The event will focus on asking ‘What are the Environmental Priorities for Birmingham and our Local Enterprise Partners’ and speakers include Cllr Timothy Huxtable, Cabinet member for Regeneration and Transportation, Birmingham City Council and Simon Slater, Birmingham Environmental Partnership.

The formation of the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) covering Birmingham, Solihull, Lichfield, Tamworth, East Staffordshire, Cannock and Bromsgrove provides a new mechanism that will allow a more collaborative approach to economic development.  This is your opportunity to influence this new way of working.
