The economic downturn and recent signs of recovery in the UK raises urgent questions. Reliance on unsustainable resources and an adherence to traditional forms of economic growth are placing the UK in a fragile position and undermining our capacity for leadership in innovation. Bold action is required to steer the UK towards a pathway of green growth and thus towards a green economy.

The report of the UCL Green Economy Policy Commission argues that the time is right to move towards a green economy. It provides a synthesis of recent research and evidence in this area, and explores the high-level policies and frameworks necessary to achieve this, making a number of significant policy recommendations.

This event will offer an opportunity to hear about the main findings and recommendations as well as a lively panel discussion focusing on some of the major challenges in achieving a green economy as well as considering the possible responses.
