- Carbon emission and climate risk
- Reversing the decline in biodiversity
- Connecting people and nature through investments in green infrastructure
Also sitting on the panel is Future Generations Commissioner, Sophie Howe, along with senior representatives from business, environmental non-governmental organisations (NGOs), the farming and third sector and Local Government.
