23 10 15 Bristol Leaders Summit

Bristol City Mayor George Ferguson CBE will lead the summit which will involve a gathering of around 200 business and civic leaders from around the world. Discussions and exhibitions will form the basis of the event. As the globe becomes increasingly urbanised, occasions like this are seen as vital to pave the way for a more sustainable future.

Attendees will get the chance to share experiences regarding progressive thought leadership and inspirational solutions to the everyday challenges facing modern cities. The summit will prove to be a crucial step towards creating successful City Transformative Action Plans in the lead up to the United Nations’ Climate Change Conference, or 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris, which runs from 30th November to 11th December 2015.

The City Leadership Summit will be chaired by British broadcast journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy. The event is not open to the public, but it is expected that the important discussions taking place will soon make a positive impact on the people under the leadership and influence of those in attendance.
