IPPR Environmental Justice Commission Final Report Launch
IPPR is delighted to invite you to the launch of the Environmental Justice Commision's final report. This will take place on Wednesday 14th July at 09:00-11:30 (BST) on ZOOM.
The IPPR Environmental Justice Commission was established in May 2019 to develop a plan on how the UK could address the climate crisis and restore nature while also creating jobs, increasing fairness across society, and improving the quality of life for everyone across the UK.
Concluding two years of work, which has involved listening to experts, business leaders, trade unionists and civil society, and holding four citizens juries across the UK, the Commission will release its final report this summer. This will set out a vision for an economy that is clean, healthy and fair. Realising this ambition will require a fundamental redesign of our economic system and society, putting people and communities at the heart of the process.
Our launch event will be a key gathering in the lead-up to COP26 for those working to tackle the climate and nature crises. It will bring together politicians, policymakers, businesses, civil society groups and members of our citizens juries to discuss our final report.
Joining instructions can be found below, along with the full programme. Joining instructions will also be sent to you following registration.
