The Annual Debate 2019: Riding the sustainability wave, or sinking under increased demand?

On November 28 2019, 80 ICRS members came together in the Great Room at the RSA for our Annual Debate. This year’s hot topic was ‘Riding the sustainability wave, or sinking under increased demand?’, reflecting growing public interest in climate change.   

Anita Longley, ICRS Chair, introduced the topic and explained why it's an important discussion: Greta, Extinction Rebellion and media coverage have put sustainability at the top of the agenda. With the phenomenal interest in sustainability, and the role of the media in bringing it to the forefront of the minds of the public, how are we going to make sure that we capture this interest and don’t just let it pass us by?
