RSA Birmingham: In Conversation with Susan Harris

This event features the MEBC and our peer organisations debating what will make our places sustainable. Work is absolutely key to sustainability and work usually means jobs and jobs usually means business, so business is also key. Where we work, working and living conditions and the resources we use in our work and environments are also important for sustainability. That means this topic is of importance to everyone.

Please join the Chair of the RSA Sustainability Network, Susan Harris, in conversation with David Middleton FRSA, former CEO of the UK branch of The World Business Council for Sustainable Development.

The conversation will focus on how we can make our homes and communities sustainable and consider practical next steps we can take together in the West Midlands.  

  • Anna Bright (Sustainability West Midlands) 
  • Richard Baines (Midlands Environmental Business Company) 
  • Paul Dockrill (Walsall Housing Group) 
  • Beverley Nielsen (Birmingham City University)  


There will be time for Q&A and discussion with the speakers. 

The event is free to attend but please book your place in advance
