In December 2019, the Perth City Leadership Forum held its first annual conference, drawing inspiration from other cities around Europe to look at what it would take for Perth to become the most sustainable small city in Europe. Since then, the Forum’s working groups have been taking forward the actions identified by the conference participants.
We are holding our second conference, on Friday 21st January 2022 from 0900 – 1300 to kick-start a year of action on biodiversity, providing inspiration and ideas, creating connections and partnerships for transformational change and highlighting some of the incredible work that is already happening on our doorstep. The conference will be run virtually via Hopin, offering an opportunity for networking and to showcase activities through virtual expo booths.
We are delighted to announce that Pekka Timonen, the Mayor of Europe's Green Capital 2021, Lahti in Finland will be delivering the keynote address. You can see the amazing work on nature and biodiversity that Pekka and his team have been delivering here.
