When it came to power in May 2010 the UK Coalition Government pledged to be the greenest government ever. We have been promised a ‘green revolution’ for a green economy, green jobs and for low-carbon living ……… but how far have we come? What more do we need to do? And how do our international counterparts compare?

In March 2012, CIWEM will hold a two-day Annual Conference that will address multidisciplinary issues across all areas of the global water and environment sector. It will have the key theme - “Green Revolution” and the conference will consider our progress towards achieving this.

The aim of the conference is to challenge and inspire the water and environment community by sharing knowledge and best practice, which is at the heart of meeting key global challenges for a low-carbon future. There will be a mix of keynote speakers, offered papers, exhibitions and networking opportunities that will make this the key event for water and environment professionals.
