EVENT OVERVIEW

As Australian and Victorian policies move towards cutting greenhouse gas emissions in response to growing concern about climate change, regions such as the Latrobe Valley need to reposition to prosper in a low carbon emissions future.

There is good evidence that Latrobe Valley's businesses, industries and community groups are already responding with strategic plans underway

The Latrobe Valley is working towards positioning itself to maximise new economic opportunities to drive a transformational step change.

  • What does this transition to a low carbon emissions future mean for industries and businesses?
  • How can the Latrobe Valley continue to attract investment to boost the regional and Victorian economy?
  • Given the transition to a low carbon economy, what opportunities exist for the Latrobe Valley to deliver improved liveable and sustainable outcomes for the community?

At this CEDA forum, we will discuss a vision for the region to adapt to a low carbon emissions future. Join business, industry and policy makers to discuss opportunities and priorities to power a new economy and future for the Latrobe Valley.
