People, Politics and the Planet: Any Questions? Britain in a Changing Europe

A public event bringing together voices from politics, business, science and civil society to debate the UK environment in a changing Europe.

Join the Sibthorp Trust, the British Ecological Society and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) for the first opportunity to debate the future of UK environmental policy in the aftermath of the EU referendum. This event is organised with support from the Society for the Environment and the Wellcome Trust.

The UK has voted to leave the European Union, launching the country into a period of uncertainty as a new relationship with Europe and the world is negotiated. The EU frameworks that have underpinned much of our environmental policy and legislation – from agriculture to protected areas – are no longer assured.

Yet the challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss will lose none of their urgency. What will environmental policy in the UK look like outside of the European Union? What threats and opportunities does ‘Brexit’ pose for the environment? How will we tackle international challenges under a new political agreement?

Chaired by Jonathan Dimbleby, People, politics and the planet: any questions? will bring together a panel of leading politicians: George Eustice MP (Conservative, Minister of State for Farming Food and the Marine Environment); Kerry McCarthy MP (Labour); Baroness Parminter (Liberal Democrats, Environment Spokesperson); Natalie Bennett (Green Party, Leader) and Stuart Agnew (UKIP, Agriculture Spokesperson), to answer your questions.
