The CEN Manifesto: Votes grow on Trees

What is the political role that environmental policies can play and how can the CEN Manifesto's conservative ideas contribute to that debate?


The environment is the top issue for young voters, and polling shows that 71% of the public believes climate change to be more pressing than Brexit. The panel will discuss the political role that environmental policies can play in any future election, what those environmental policies should look like, and the role of free market, conservative solutions in any future election campaign. How can Conservatives combat renationalisation policies proposed by the left that could do economic harm?

Women and climate change: impact and response

Discussing how the impacts of climate change will impact women around the world & how more women can be involved in the response via STEM


Women around the world will be disproportionately impacted by climate change, mostly due to existing gender inequalities. Women are also less likely to be involved in the conversation with inequalities in STEM subjects in particular. Initiatives from companies like EDF Energy aim to inspire more women into STEM or apprenticeships. This panel will consider the impact climate change will have on women, and how women can be more involved in the response to climate change as well.
