About this Event

“I’ve seen the future and it’s Norwich:the energy-saving, social housing revolution”. Oliver Wainwright, The Guardian, July 2019

Norwich City Council will describe how they made this happen and the City of York Council will share how they are developing these ambitious principles across the city. The discussion will be moderated by Guardian journalist, Oliver Wainwright.

The event is designed to help - we want you to feel optimistic and inspired. We will offer insights to help you persuade others that this is not just possible, but achievable, recognising that this is a different journey for everyone.

The content has been co-created, based on responses from over 35 Local Authorities across the country. We are responding to the questions that you’re facing.


  • Two representatives from local authorities will describe some of the complexities they faced.
  • You will learn some of the processes and techniques that were used to deliver.
  • You will be offered the opportunity to start a conversation and receive further support from Mikhail Riches.
