Engage is currently preparing our annual seminar series for the autumn and this year we are responding to the growing concerns amongst residents and citizens across Liverpool who care about the climate crisis and the challenge to meet net-zero commitments. Sustainability has become a serious item on many people’s agenda who are not only concerned about what they themselves can do to mitigate the worst elements of climate chaos but are increasingly impatient to see positive leadership from local and national government.

Residents of the waterfront and city centre are going to have an unrivalled opportunity to witness the leadership shown by 3 European Green Capital (EGC) cities as part of the Engage seminar series 2024. We are pursuing contacts in a number of European Green Capitals with a view to inviting them to Liverpool to share with our residents and politicians what they are doing in their city to improve sustainability and how they achieved their significant title of EGC. Below are the three places that have agreed to participate in our autumn seminar series:





We always choose our venues carefully and this year they are buildings that have good sustainability credentials: 1) Novotel, Paddington Village, Knowledge Quarter, 2) LJMU John Lennon Art & Design Building, Brownlow Hill and 3) the Isle of Man Ferry Terminal, Jesse Hartley Way, Central Docks, Waterfront. This is a deliberate decision as we have consciously created a route from the Knowledge Quarter to the Waterfront via Brownlow Hill to animate the proposal for the Liverpool Green Lanes project. We will speak about this concept at each of the seminars this year.

We have also spoken to Nijmegen, Holland, Nantes, France, and Essen in Germany but none felt able to attend our seminar series. If you want to know more about the significance of the European Green Capital award please watch the very informative YouTube video here:
