Environmentally Sustainable Councils II

The ‘Innovation Council’ has already hosted one session which looked to establish the guiding principles for a model environmentally sustainable Council. This document is a an attempt at synthesising the ideas and suggestions made by a leading group of experts from the second session. They are categorised according to themes which emerged during the discussion. As one speaker in the second session noted, it is important to note that no single policy recommendation can be treated in isolation?and a much wider political view should be taken. It is for that reason that we have also included the guiding principles towards the end of this document, which are intended to ensure that any policy recommendations remain firmly grounded and meaningful.
