The climate and ecological emergency: beyond declarations,  what is the plan?
Edge Conversation 114 

This panel discussion with Dame Fiona Reynolds, Master of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and Chair of the National Audit Office Shaun Spiers, Executive Director, Green Alliance, seeks to answer the question "What are the barriers to achieving positive outcomes and how do we overcome them?", and, in particular:

1. What are the policies required and how can we influence them?
2. How can we ensure that policies, once enacted, achieve their aims?
3. How do we ensure that the pace of change is sufficient?

Listen to Dieter Helm as he compares and contrasts the government’s attitude to climate emergency with Boris Johnson's love of bridges (garden ones) and/or tunnels (to Ireland) and the challenges of delivery and funding.
