  • Women Driving Political Change

Friday, 2 November 2018

Rt Hon Michael Gove MP, CWO Forum, Westminster 
A group of Conservative women and members of the Conservative Party attended the CWO Policy Forum on “Blue policy for a Green Planet” in October 2018. Panel speakers included Rt Hon Michael Gove MP, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs alongside Conservative Environment Network, and 38 Degrees. 

Chaired by CPF Director Flick Drummond, in Parliament, the CWO policy forum discussed issues on some of the environment challenges faced by our planet from climate change: chemical residues, exploitation and plastic. With data, “by the year 2050, the seas will contain more plastic than fish.”

The plastic bag charge has reduced the number of plastic distributed by almost 90 per cent, and further sanctions by banning micro-beads which harm our marine life, and protecting animal welfare. The government is also working with scientists, and the private sector to develop new greener products.

In late 2018, the Conservative led Government aims to take steps to make recycling easier to consumers, invest in cleaner technologies, and take tougher sanctions against fly-tippers who pollute the landscape. To protect and improve the environment, the government has already created the first environment plan published in January 2018.  

The forum was an opportunity to learn the impact on climate change, and to put across views and concerns about policy and how it should be formulated in the future with a more conscience presence in protecting our planet, including our wildlife, with the global population growing and food production.
