One of the key purposes of the Fabian Society is to help shape policy on the left; so we intend to do just that. The Labour National Policy Forum Consultation for 2020 is now open for submissions until 30th June, and we could not be at a more pivotal point for decision making as the pandemic-induced standstill transitions to recovery. The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change recently stated that humanity has eleven years left to avoid the worst effects of global warming, and this is a crucial, unique opportunity to implement long term sustainable change. Blink, and it'll be back to 'business as normal' before you know it.

Join us for a collaborative meeting where we as a network come together and add our voices to this important consultation. This is also open to others wishing to get involved, with policy experience or ideas for reform which prioritises planet over profit. We are setting up a document for contributors before and after which will be shared in due course.

If you have any queries or ideas, please get in touch with Cecilia Eve or Alex Naile.

Key questions (but not limited to):
1. What environmental conditions should be attached to government support for business during and after the coronavirus crisis?
2. How can national, devolved and local government most effectively redeploy workers to “shovel-ready” green infrastructure projects such as renewables construction,nature conservation and home insulation?
3. What economic reforms and fiscal incentives should the government introduce to ensure that the post-crisis economy is a sustainable one?
4. What new environmental protections should we be pushing for post-Brexit?
5. How can we promote greater sustainability in land use and farming practices?
