SEDA / GHT Glasgow Green Night:
Glasgow’s New Sustainability Agenda
With Councillor Anna Richardson, GCC Convener for Sustainability and Carbon Reduction
Cost: SEDA Members and GHT Trustees: £3 // Non-members: £5
SEDA and GHT invite you to hear from Councillor Anna Richardson about how she has been heading up Glasgow City Council’s Sustainability Policy since last year’s elections. This is your chance to find out about how sustainability fits into the Council’s plans, and what is happening in relation to environmental protection and pollution, transport and carbon reduction. As always, there will be an opportunity to ask Anna questions directly, to chat with her and other members afterwards, and let her and others know your thoughts and what you think people should know more about.
Light refreshments will be served as a part of the evening, we hope you can join us for some lively and relaxed debate, hosted by Glasgow Heritage Trust.
Speaker: Councillor Anna Richardson (SNP) has been Councillor for Langside since 2015 and has been heading Sustainability Policy since last May’s elections. Since taking on this position she has been involved with working on, amongst other projects, a proposal for a Low Emissions Zone in the Merchant City, and the ongoing active travel corridor from Queens Park to the City Centre. She is also a sits on the Strathclyde Partnership for Transport, and the Glasgow Allotments Forum.
She has said her particular interests are:
“making our city a better place to live, in particular for women, children and families who are often affected the most by our policies. I am passionate about education, especially early years and childcare, as well as planning and active travel.”
