Post-Copenhagen, and with a major new wind farm on the horizon, what are the opportunities nd challenges the marine environment provides ow and how will it shape the city’s future?

Sustainability Conference 2010

What are our MPs and councillors doing to prevent this?

The problem of climate change is relevant to development proposals within Brighton & Hove aimed at higher densities (e.g. transport implications: congestion; air quality management), the problems of the quantity of waste we produce (e.g. wasteful design/consumption; over-packaging), and our Council's arrangements for disposing of it (e.g. the low level of our current recycling targets and dependence on incineration as a future method of waste management) and the choices as to how we produce energy (e.g. renewables, import of oil/gas, coal, nuclear).
