IPPR Environmental Justice Commission – final report launched
The cross-party Environmental Justice Commission (EJC), chaired by leading figures from the Conservative, Labour and Green parties, was founded in 2019 with a mission to develop a programme to address the climate and nature crisis and to do so in a way that addresses wider economic and social unfairness.
The final report of the EJC; ‘Fairness and opportunity: A people-powered plan for the green transition‘, has been released today (14th July 2021)
This is a think tank report with a difference, containing a comprehensive plan for tackling the joint climate and nature emergencies with over 100 recommendations drawn from the insights, hopes and anxieties for the future of members of the public who took part in EJC citizens’ juries and deliberative democracy events across the UK. The EJC held four citizens’ juries in Tees Valley and County Durham, the South Wales Valleys, Thurrock and Aberdeenshire along with deliberative projects in Doncaster and London. This engagement with the public has been the foundation to the conclusions and recommendations of ‘Fairness and opportunity: A people-powered plan for the green transition‘.
