Public Discussion

Our online discussion took place towards the end of 2013. This discussion followed on from a series of workshops which were held around the country, where members of the public shared their views on their own environmental priorities, as well as discussing the five topics highlighted below. The findings of both the online discussion and the workshops are presented in a report that can be found here. We’ll be using these findings, together with a brand new toolkit, to help us plan further public discussions in the future.
