Event Description

The West Midlands Combined Authority is the new organisation headed up by the West Midlands Mayor, Andy Street. The organisation is a collaboration between eighteen local authorities and four Local Enterprise Partnerships and has devolved responsibility for economic development, transport, infrastructure, skills, digital and housing growth.

We are delighted to invite Dr Simon Slater, Head of Environment at the West Midlands Combined Authority to discuss with our membership how the Authority are planning for and contributing towards the future sustainability of our region.

He will talk about the work of the West Midlands Combined Authority, including: what the developing role of the organisation is to help support the future of the region; what the role of the environment is within this; and potential ways to get involved.

He is looking forward to hearing your questions and suggestions, as his team begins to tackle air quality, carbon emissions, waste, and natural capital as part of the clean growth theme in the forthcoming Local Industrial Strategy.

About the speaker

Dr Simon Slater has worked in regional sustainability for over 20 years for a variety of organisations such as the Environment Agency, Forum for the Future, Advantage West Midlands, and Sustainability West Midlands. He has been awarded for his work on sustainability and community regeneration and also has a Blue Peter badge for energy saving.
