About this event

Every European nation faces a multitude of environmental challenges, including biodiversity loss, climate change, energy insecurity, and water and air pollution. Historically, the EU has had a hugely important effect on how environmental policy responses are framed and implemented, particularly in Europe but also in other parts of the world. Recent developments, including Brexit, have pushed EU environmental policy making into more uncertain times where continuing political support for strong action is not a given. At the same time, the future of Britain’s own approach is still unclear. Standards are up for grabs, while the impact of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement with the EU and new Free Trade Agreements with other nations are complex or unknown.

In this talk, Professor Andy Jordan will talk through trends and challenges in environmental policy making in the EU and Britain, followed by a Q&A.
