View Report

This seminar was a chance to bring together relevant parties in government, business, civil society, and academia for candid discussion on what the current roadblocks were for different institutions adopting more sustainable policies, and what could be done to help those institutions circumvent those roadblocks. The main questions the participants addressed were: * What value and assumptions are embedded in current institutions which make them act as roadblocks to more sensible policies? * How should we analyse the effects of their removal on other areas of policy? * How should we go about removing them? What should be the next steps?
