We will hear more about this and other topics from the following guest speakers:

The project, managed by Plymouth City Council brings together multiple partners, working together to drive change in the fast growing digital creative sector, creating jobs, delivering training and supporting businesses across to start up or grow.
Jackie Young - Urban Agenda, In 2017 Sir David Attenborough's Blue Planet II inspired a national change in attitudes towards single use plastic, a threat to our environment that is only just being realised. As Britain's Ocean City, Plymouth is taking this threat very seriously; encouraging action to clean up what is already out there in the environment and working towards reducing the use of single-use plastic wherever possible. So far, 103 businesses of all sizes have taken up the challenge and helped to secured Plastic Free Community status for the city, a status that will help to inspire further action over the coming years.
This presentation will introduce you to the challenges we face and the opportunities that will benefit both environmental policies and corporate social responsibility targets, as well as leading by example.
