A Just Recovery?A Just Recovery?

During her talk at the Hay Festival Digital, Christiana Figueres, former UN Executive Secretary for Climate Change, pointed out that the post covid stimulus package, an estimated 15 trillion dollars, will dwarf all spending for many years to come, making it vital that this money is used to create a massive shift to a circular, low carbon economy not business as usual.

There have been many aspects of lockdown which have been frustrating, difficult and distressing but last week these were mitigated by the pleasure of joining thousands from around the world online at the Hay Festival Digital.  There were the obvious glitches due to the familiar poor internet connections and I was disappointed not to hear Ilhan Omar, (her interview with Jon Snow was cancelled due to the unfolding situation in Minnesota), but there were many delights and congratulations go to the organisers. Those that missed it can catch the talks on Hay Player for a £10 subscription.
