A debate will be held on devolution at Anglia Ruskin University today, just hours before councillors in Cambridge decide on the deal.
Experts from across the region will discuss the implications of increased local powers.
They will also discuss the impact Brexit will have on the East.
Professor Aled Jones, Director of Anglia Ruskin's Global Sustainability Institute, said: "The GSI is delighted to host this special panel discussion on the day that Cambridge City Council votes on devolution.
"In the context of dramatically changing political structures - moving from regional development agencies, through Local Enterprise Partnerships, into devolution - there is a need to understand how sustainability should be delivered.
"A clear gap exists, and appears to be widening, in sustainability leadership and delivery at regional level in the UK."

Norfolk County Council has cancelled a meeting that was due to take place to vote on plans for devolution.
It's believed the government will now withdraw the proposals - after King's Lynn and West Norfolk Borough councillors last week voted against the plans.
The government invited councils for local devolution deal bids back in July 2015 saying it would give them much more say in local decision making.
Last September, Suffolk and Norfolk were told to submit a joint deal, not one for each county.
By March this year, Cambridgeshire had ruled itself out of joining a three-county deal, saying it wanted to go it alone.
Now Norfolk County Council says it's willing to discuss alternative options meanwhile Suffolk County Council say it may still go ahead alone.
