Government Business 29.02

Time to put people at the centre of policy

This March issue of Government Business has a number of varied features which look at the role of placing people at the centre of decision making.

Firstly I would like to signpost you to our interview with Councillor Phélim Mac Cafferty on page 15 in which the leader of Brighton & Hove City Council discusses bringing together people and projects to tackle the climate emergency, as well as local food strategies and reducing transport-related carbon emissions in the city.

On page 19, the IWFM’s Linda Hausmanis discusses why the question of how organisations get the best from their staff has never been more prominent than in today’s world of work. Her thoughts on the triad of people, technology and the workplace is a very interesting read.

Elsewhere, our March energy feature (page 27) analyses the increasing public support for solar and Chris Clarke, from HOPE not hate, writes about the need to focus more on local events which bring people and their communities closer together (page 67). As alway, enjoy the issue.
