Milton Keynes Council is asking for environmental experts, as well as local people and businesses to share views and evidence for how Milton Keynes can be transformed into a post-carbon city.
The Council has established a Task and Finish Group to research and make recommendations into how it can achieve its Sustainability Strategy ambitions for Milton Keynes to become carbon neutral by 2030 and carbon negative by 2050, helping to tackle climate change.
Chair of the Task and Finish Group, Cllr David Hopkins said:
“In January 2019, the council set itself the ambitious aim of becoming the greenest city in the world. We believe we can achieve that ambition and would welcome evidence from interested parties and academics and subject experts that help us reach that goal.
We look forward to hearing from people keen to help MK set the benchmark for cities across the globe in tackling climate change at a local level.”

Written evidence should be received by 1 November 2019 and expressions of interest to speak at the group by 10 October 2019.
