CAT Conference 2018

The time is fast approaching once again for our flagship event of the year, the CAT conference.

From 5th to 7th October around 80-100 people from the CAT community will get together for a weekend of networking, discussion and reflection among people dedicated to taking action on the serious issues we face.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Increasing Ambition: connecting up local, national and global solutions”. Come and join us for a varied programme of talks, practical workshops and in-depth discussions on our beautiful site in the foothills of Snowdonia.

All food is supplied by our on-site vegetarian cafe

This year our CEO Adrian Ramsay will be unveiling our bold new strategy. Many of you provided valuable input to the strategy, which will provide direction and focus for CAT over the next five years. There will also be a keynote presentation by Peter Harper, who coined the term “Alternative Technology”, in which he will explore the urgency of changes needed to meet environmental challenges and how recent technical developments could help us succeed. This will be supported by a variety of interactive workshops on topics such as “How to have better conversations about climate change” and “Using the arts to convey environmentalism and activism”.
