In our first webinar of 2023, we will be inviting Sam Alvis, Head of Economy at Green Alliance, to discuss how economic research can be leveraged to influence policy.The UK’s macroeconomic environment is unlikely to look any healthier by the next election. Both parties will be looking for policies that help to boost growth and everyday economic outcomes. Sam will discuss why they’re focusing on green growth, what openings that might mean for greening government policy over the next two years, and how his organisation is building its understanding of green economic policy.
