Will the Big Society and localism agendas make us a greener society?
This conference is a unique opportunity to examine the Big Society and localism agendas in light of efforts to build a more sustainable society.
The event will bring together key thinkers (including Nick Hurd MP, Matthew Spencer, Lord Giddens, and Matthew Taylor) with a diverse and influential audience drawn from civil society, local and central government, policy and business networks. It is the ideal opportunity to get a handle on the implications and opportunities that these new agendas offer and will place the aspiration of a greener society at the heart of the Big Society vision.
