Sustainabilitylive! only one month to go!

It's that time of year again when the country's environmental professionals descend on Birmingham for three days of green conferences and networking.

I'll be honest with you I do have an interest in the success of the event as's parent company Faversham House is also the organiser of it.

But, regardless of that I've been to countless environmental conferences and sustainabilitylive! is definitely one of the best of them.

Apart from the fact it's free, last year's Adnams was giving away free carbon neutral beer!

I've looked for it since but can't find – I'm going to add that to my weekend to do list.

But, back to sustainabilitylive!, the shear mix of information available to people is like edie itself, where else could you hear about a case study on contaminated land remediation in Glasgow one moment.

And, then see water firm workers racing against the clock in drilling and tapping?

Now I've been scouring the seminar timetables and some interesting people there with Edie's Awards for Environmental Excellence judge Greg Archer of the Low carbon Vehicle Partnership a notable speaker.

He'll be interviewing Julia King, in the ET section, author of the King review in which the Government looked at the next quarter of a century of sustainable transport – will have me in the audience.

Then I'll be looking around NEMEX and IWEX - always good to see what the power and water firms are thinking.

And, of course the hardest to get your head round, but one of the most satisfying when you do is the BEX theatre for some contaminated land news.
