There’s an opportunity to find out about the future of environmentally friendly transport when the first ever “Green Transport” Event in North Wales takes place.

It will be at the Catrin Finch Centre at Glyndwr University on Friday 23 March from 10am until 4pm and it’s free to attend.

You will be able to hear from those who are knowledgeable and experienced in operating green transport and see examples of “green” transport solutions and existing models which operate successfully in Wales. Experts, groups and agencies at the event will provide information on the latest electric cars and other vehicles and give you an opportunity to meet other people from the area who are interested in developing green transport solutions.


The event will be hosted by Renew Wales and AVOW and our Lead Member for the Environment and Transport, Cllr David A Bithell, will open the event.

“Carbon neutral public sector”

He said: “I am a keen supporter of green transport and will be very pleased to open this event – the first of its type in North Wales. I hope there will be many more in readiness for 2030 when the Welsh Government is hoping for a carbon neutral public sector and in the UK it is expected that the sale of diesel and petrol cars will be stopped by 2040. This initiative will go a long way to supporting both of these goals.”

The Renew Wales Programme is a community initiative that tackles climate change through advice, training and mentoring support. Their activities include developing community renewable energy resources, starting local food clubs, making land and buildings more sustainable, energy efficient and sustainable travel projects, establishing community enterprises and engaging schools and business in climate change action.
