Metis is the journal of IPPR@universities, the student thinktank network. This year’s theme – the environment – has provided the opportunity for students to think about the difficult policy issues that will directly affect their futures. Unsurprisingly, all the essays express the urgent need for long-term thinking and policymaking.
Metis aims to provide students with the opportunity to engage with the policy process and gives them a unique platform to express opinions, critiques and solutions. The third volume of Metis shows how much the IPPR@universities programme has grown since 2010. This year's edition features contributions from four universities – Warwick, Sheffield, York and Manchester.
Edited by Marc Geddes from the University of Sheffield, the third issue of the journal features eight essays by student thinktankers:
- Guy King, Sheffield – A balancing act: ethical consumption and waste
- Iuean Ferrer, York – The case for a meat tax
- Efraim del Campo Parra Munoz, Sheffield – British politics and GM crops
- Chisom Ubabukoh, Manchester – How to throw a dinner party for 7 billion guests: food security and environmental sustainability
- Robin Lovelace, Sheffield – Carbon capture and storage: bury the myth and focus on alternatives
- Adela Putinelu, Manchester – The battle for air: is emissions trading the best policy instrument to avert global warming?
- Dominic Wyard, Warwick – Development and the environment: a necessary trade-off?
- Daniel Cole, Warwick – Economic growth or the environment? Both: sustainable capitalism
