Julian Huppert is the Member of Parliament for Cambridge. He was elected with a majority of nearly 7,000 in May 2010. Outside politics Julian’s other great passion is science- he has a PhD in Biological Chemistry from the University of Cambridge and until the election was a practising research scientist. Julian is a passionate advocate of green policy, and he was a member of the Lib Dem working party that produced national policies on climate change and the environment, aiming to achieve a zero-carbon economy by 2050. Until 2013, Julian served as co-chair of the Lib Dem Transport committee, and is currently co-chair of the APPG on Cycling. He is also a board member of the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology. Julian recently contributed to the ‘The Green Book’, which re-examines the Lib Dem approach to green policy and suggest fresh ideas for the next decade and beyond, with a chapter on the clean-tech industry.

This talk will explore the need to support Cambridge’s growing clean tech/green sector and how this ties in with the expansion of the city through its growth areas. Followed by a Q&A.

This talk is part of the Sustainability in the Built Environment (GreenBRIDGE) series.
