The Prince of Wales is to open a climate change exhibition in Woking this Friday that will be rolled out across the UK’s shopping centres.
As revealed by Property Week last month (news 16-02-07) the UK’s top shopping centre landlords met in February with chancellor Gordon Brown to discuss the opportunity for shopping centres to house the climate change roadshow.
Landlords including Land Securities, Westfield, British Land, Hammerson and Capital Shopping Centres have agreed to house the exhibition at more than 50 shopping centres across the country and launching this Friday at British Land’s Peacocks shopping centre in Woking.
The exhibition is organised jointly by Business in the Community and BCSC. The exhibition is supported by BSkyB and endorsed by the Climate Group and has the active support of The Prince of Wales and the chancellor.
The first phase of the exhibition will tour 12 shopping centres that have a collective footfall of over nine million shoppers over the period of the exhibition.
The exhibition uses a series of display stands that give practical and easy actions on how consumers can reduce their carbon footprint. The stands touch on the issues of recycling, energy use, transport, waste reduction and locally sourced food.
