Thursday 13th June 2013

Posted: May 2013

The LES Partnership is hosting a free afternoon event in Birmingham on the 13th June. It will include a brief overview of the Partnership and the benefits of being involved, followed by a practitioner workshop, exploring ‘partnership and innovation in air quality action planning.’

Participation is open to all local authority officers with an interest in low emission strategies and air quality action plans, though numbers are limited. Further details and full agenda will be circulated shortly. The event is free to attend and CPD certificates will be available.

The event forms part of the Partnership’s Annual General Meeting, with formal business to be completed earlier during a short morning session (attendance at the morning session is by invitation, as it is intended for existing members of the LES Partnership Board and Project Teams).
