Democracy and Sustainability at the Dana Centre, Science Museum, London

At this event, organised by The Environment Foundation (precursor to FDSD) and the 21st Century Trust, people and organisations from business, civil society and government came together to explore the relationship between democracy and sustainability, chaired by Lord Patten.

Group discussions focused on spreading techniques such as full life-cycle analysis, the role of leadership outside mainstream politics, innovations happening at city and local level, the need to counter an increasingly fragmented and disaggregated world, and the ‘embedded inertia’ of current democratic structures, making it hard to see what should be done.
