Conference footage: Government's approach to sustainable development

27 October 2015

The Environmental Audit Committee hosts a conference on the Government's approach to sustainable development.

The conference will be held on Tuesday 10 November 2015 in the Attlee Suite, Portcullis House between 9am and 11am. The event will be free.

The Committee will be exploring what impact the new Government's fiscal and legislative agenda will have on sustainable development. It will be looking to establish themes for its work during the Parliament and measures against which the Government's success can be judged. The evidence received for this inquiry will feed into the Committees work over the course of this Parliament.

Although this is not a formal Committee evidence session, the event will be transcribed and published on the Committee's website. The Committee will use the perspectives gathered during the conference to support a subsequent formal oral evidence session with Government Ministers later during the autumn.
