Everything from cycling more to buying fewer clothes was discussed during the event, which was sponsored by Roythornes Solicitors where staff are being urged to make small, environmentally-friendly acts.

The evening was hosted by environmental charity PECT at Peterborough Cathedral last Thursday to bring together organisations and professionals throughout the region to discuss sustainability.

Visitors were also able to enjoy the Gaia exhibition by Luke Jerram - a 7m diameter sphere featuring detailed NASA imagery of the earth’s surface.
