Marie Macklin CBE, Founder and Executive Chair of the HALO, will be a special guest speaker at the New York Times Climate Hub in November.
Created to coincide with the COP26 summit, the NYT Climate Hub at SWG3 in Glasgow is a physical and virtual space where influential leaders and thinkers join forces with the wider community to debate, discuss and discover actionable climate strategies.
Marie will appear at the summit on Thursday 11th November when she features in a forum titled ‘Green Upskilling; the next generation of climate skills and leadership’ hosted by Emmanuel Fabre, the former chair and CEO of the global food business Danone.
The HALO Kilmarnock is setting the standard for low carbon energy sites by creating a sustainable community powered by renewable energy at one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly developments in the UK.
Marie said: “I am honoured to be invited by the New York Times to appear at its Climate Hub during COP26 in Glasgow.
“The New York Times is a global leader in helping its readers to understand the impacts of climate change and its investment in heavily researched journalism is paving the way for real change as governments and businesses consider how best to reduce their carbon footprints.
“COP26 in Glasgow is a huge moment in the battle against climate change and I am really looking forward to not only being a speaker at the NYT Climate Hub but also meeting and listening to guests from all over the world who really are advancing climate action.”
