‘Those at the meeting recognised that there is a need to work preventatively, and with foresight so that we can address challenges that face our communities today. Joint-up policy-making is the key to defeating shorterm-ism’explained Prof Tilbury. ‘Delivering on this intergenerational commitment also requires connected efforts across public bodies and innovative private sector partnerships.’
The meeting with parliamentarians was followed by a civil society reception organized by Lord Bird which brought together key stakeholders from business and civil society across the UK. The event was supported by the “Today4Tomorrow” campaign that seeks to raise awareness of the Bill’s ambition.
Professor Tilbury added, ‘It was pleasing to know UK parliamentarians are looking to Gibraltar as an example to follow.’
