The Broadway Initiative’s goal is to help 'mainstream' sustainability so that all parts of the UK economy have the right enabling framework – essentially the carrots and sticks – to plan, invest and collaborate in meeting environmental goals.
This forthcoming event is part of a larger ‘big conversation’ that the Broadway Initiative is running , which is designed to bring key players from local authorities, business, relevant professions and environmental groups together with government ministers and officials to discuss what is needed to improve environments locally.
The key points of discussion at this event will be around the Environment Bill, the forthcoming Planning Bill, and more broadly discussing how local authorities, businesses, government, and other organisations can help to shape local delivery frameworks to translate national climate and wider environmental ambitions into action on the ground.
Alongside this event, a survey is running to gather their views on how local leaders can be empowered to transform their communities towards sustainability, which will then be anonymised and presented to the government to feed into their work.
A roundtable discussion will be held following this webinar, with local leaders, civil servants from central government, and representatives from business, to reflect on the survey findings and the conversation at this event and inform the recommendations that will be put forward to ministers in the autumn.
