Establishing the Principles of a Model Environmentally Sustainable Council
The Innovation Council was set up in to look into the work of local Councils, and to come up with innovative new ideas for them to adapt and adopt to their own individual areas. We assembled a group of eighteen senior figures from local government, business, NGOs and environmental experts in order to discuss the underlying principles for achieving a model environmentally sustainable Council. This publication represents the output from the first workshop, and will be used for subsequent workshops in order to inform and guide the process. The concluding underlying principles are intended to reflect the whole range of the discussion. They will provide a historical and wider contextual meaning to any future policy discussions.
