Labour is set upon securing a sustainable future:- The Green Manifesto; the announcement for 1.75 million homes fitted with solar panels; the eco-banking proposals; the democratic ownership proposals, the plans for a Green Industrial Revolution. They are commissioning reports and consulting with new progressive think tanks like Common Wealth. This is a great start. And there is further to go. There is a growing movement within Labour headed by a new campaign group called “Labour for a Green New Deal”. Their aim is to ensure Labour Party’s policies go all the way. The party is serious about the Climate Emergency.
The plans for a Green Industrial Revolution were launched In May. The Labour Party are now calling for evidence from the public to inform this programme so that it works for every region, city and town in the UK. This ‘call out’ complements a series of round-table consultations being held across the country. Whether you’re in a business, a trade union, civil society group, are a Labour Party member or otherwise a member of the public, the Labour Party wants to hear your views.
Consultation closes December 31st 2019. Here’s the link.
