Breaking the Holding Pattern--A new approach to aviation policy making in the UK

I`ve been busy putting together and Aviation themed day of workshops at the camp for climate action. More on that once it's finalised, at the moment all i can say is that it's on the 7th of August and if you are interested in aviation policy and campaigns with regards the UK you neeed to be there.

One report which has just been published and i hadn't yet heard of --ok it's been out a day!--is by the Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR) and the Sustainable Development Comission (SDC).

The report came about as the SDC performs a role of govornment advisor and needed a clearer view of the issues :

In 2007 and early 2008, to inform its advice to government, the Sustainable
Development Commission (SDC), with the Institute for Public Policy Research, ran
a stakeholder assessment on aviation. This unlocked a range of views, from
businesses, industry representatives, governments, academia, citizens’ groups
and NGOs. This report presents our observations from the assessment, followed by our recommendations for government.
