Somerset Green New Deal Economy Forum: Social Justice and a New Economy

Young people, owners of local ‘green’ businesses, local councils and economic agencies are invited to join members and interested individuals to take part in our next virtual ‘Open Space’ event, to be held on Saturday 22nd May 2021 from 9:30am – 12:30pm.

The aim of the day is to create a shared sense of purpose to support a green jobs recovery which will help deliver a thriving carbon neutral, innovative and fair Somerset by 2030.

The emphasis will be on the economy and in particular on how we can all contribute locally and practically to help the transition to a green economy, with social justice and health and wellbeing at its heart.

A spokesperson from Build Back Better Somerset said, “there are many emerging approaches to framing a just transition to zero carbon – including Green New Deal and Mission Economics – but what does this mean for people and businesses in Somerset?”

Join their Open Space event on the 22nd May to help them answer this question, go to eventbrite.co.uk or look on their website, buildbackbetteruk.org.
