Green Expo UK 2023 in June
The 3 day event will be held June 15th to 17th June
The three day event will be held down by the River Dee at Riverside on Castle Drive by the Old Dee Bridge from June 15th to 17th, Thursday to Saturday.
Green Expo 2023 has four ‘experiences' to it, a free exposition on the grass area next to the river for the three days, an all-day business conference on the Thursday, an awards dinner on the Thursday evening and a youth conference for schools and colleges on the Friday.
CHASE (Cheshire Heritage and Sustainability Enterprises) is the community interest company behind Green Expo. It is raising funds to restore the old hydroelectric building by the Old Dee Bridge to be an educational and skills centre for alternative energy. Any surplus from Green Expo will go to restoring the building as a ‘Hydro Hub'.
A recent survey revealed that 64% of Cheshire residents ‘Don't know enough about climate change and Net Zero'. 88% said they ‘don't know enough about local efforts and activities on climate change and Net Zero' and 84% would ‘like to know more'.
Green Expo will show all the great things being done locally and help individuals and organisations make their own difference. We need to work together collaboratively to make such a massive change to our lives to achieve Net Zero and reduce climate change.
Over 100 organisations in the North West and Wales are coming together to illustrate progress on Net Zero in all walks of life. Organisations like Peel NRE, Encirc, Grosvenor, Chester Zoo, NatWest and the University of Chester, individuals too. They will be joined by community initiatives and charities, electric vehicles and hydrogen transport for the FREE exposition. Other options will include local, smaller food and beverage stalls so that visitors can sample the delights of Cheshire's finest to make the Expo a complete destination over the three days.
