As we rebuild from the pandemic, and look to accelerate towards our net zero targets, our first day of events will be based around the need for a global green and just transition.

Launching the Waterline Summit 2021: Connecting the Humber to COP26, this event will bring together a range of international speakers, innovative thinkers, and industry experts to discuss the crucial role the Humber region must play as the UK’s biggest carbon emitter with the greatest decarbonisation potential.

Speakers include:

  • Liz Barber, CEO, Yorkshire Water & Kelda Group
  • Professor Dan Parsons, Director of Energy & Environment Institute, University of Hull
  • Patrick Harnett, Senior Programme Director, Ørsted UK
  • Andrew Reynolds, Project Director, Yorkshire Energy Park
  • Dominic Martin, Vice President for Government & Regulatory Affairs, Equinor
  • Amy Meek, Co-Founder, Kids Against Plastic & EEI Youth Advisory board

The regional COP26 film will also be launched in preparation for the Glasgow conference, where it has many platforms.

This will be followed by a lively 'Question Time' style panel event hosted by a leading national journalist and tv presenter (TBA Oct 1st), who will explore important themes such as technology, innovation, the energy transition, skills, location and how the Humber is a critical estuarial cluster, needed to respond to the global climate challenge facing our world leaders.

The Waterline Launch is also the headline event for the Planet Mark Zero Carbon of the UK, to be held at the Hull City Hall throughout the day. This hybrid event will start in person at the Hull City Hall with networking at 8.00am, with the official opening of the day at 8.30 from the Planet Mark hosts.
