From first 5,000 respondents to the 2050 Edinburgh City Vision consultation these aspirations emerged: 
1. Edinburgh becoming carbon neutral 
2. Eradicating poverty as we understand it today 
3. Re-imagining public space in Edinburgh 
4. Making Edinburgh more caring. 


We'll explore how to achieve the first - and balance the many other objectives pressed on those charged with running the city:  
- How can we cut emissions from our existing built heritage?
- What messages should we send to those who invest in our capital?
- How can co-benefits of transition to carbon neutral be factored in?

The event is being facilitated by Transition Edinburgh.  They are holding a short annual general meeting from 5.30-6.15pm - to which all are invited.  

Registration for the Round-table event with refreshments will be available from 6.15pm.  The event is in the City Chambers Business Centre - entered via the main Reception of the City Chambers on the High Street.

Starts:20.06.2018
