Locally ‘Green’: Does it Make a Difference?
Free public lectures by Professor Carolyn Roberts, Frank Jackson Foundation Professor of the Environment and IES Vice President

Are local environmental organisations merely groups of white, middle class and middle aged NIMBYs, with an eye to property prices? Have the UK’s major environmental pressure groups such as Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth lost their way? Has the environment dropped out of the media and public consciousness?

Drawing on examples where local, national and international environmental imperatives have clashed, the lecture will range across some initiatives apparently intended to improve the environment, including The Mayor of London's Low Carbon Prize, the Transition Town Network and the National Industrial Symbiosis Programme. The ‘voices', of some of those centrally involved the debates will be heard, whilst we explore whether any of these organisations actually made a difference.
