The launch event was attended by a cross-section of the community. A new video produced especially for Sustainable Sunderland featuring all of the Partners and their aims was shown on a large screen. That video was uploaded to YouTube so that it is available to the community and is also available on this website to view – you can see the section containing the video by clicking on this link.
