Many of you have considerable experience and specialist knowledge that can enliven our political debates on many areas of environmental interest.
We need you to lend those skills and interest to our work. You can join to contribute, or simply to listen to engaged discussions of environmental policy.

The remit of this group will include an examination of a new approach to economics, starting from a 'Quality of Life' base; including doughnut economics, circular economy, implications of UBI and taking on a 'Wellbeing' view of how the economy impacts upon people and the economy. Kate Raworth's explanation of the ways to use her Doughnut Economics approach to thinking about our local, national and global Economies will help.
The remit of this group is all about improving biodiversity by challenging the impoverishment of our declining natural economy. The group will look at how significant increases in biodiversity might be reached by commitments to 'Double Nature' both by government action at a national level, but also, significantly, by actions that can and should be taken by local authorities and community groups in particular.
Renewables and Energy Efficiency - Coordinator Geoff Harvey.
The remit of this group was prompted initially by the Local Electricity Bill currently progressing through Parliament. Not only can local energy schemes contribute clean energy to the grid and help fund community projects but also, in doing so, give communities a sense of doing something together to mitigate climate change. Local authorities are trying to find the most effective ways to encourage and participate in local initiatives.
The remit for this group covers carbon labelling for food products through the supply chain, as well as the impact of food production on UK and global agriculture and the wider environment. The group looks at biodiversity issues, soil erosion, and the impact of agriculture on greenhouse gas production
