Event Description

“Conservatives are natural conservationists. On 24 May, in Brussels, ACRE will be organising a one day seminar looking at how we can best improve our environment using market mechanisms; the innovation that comes from capitalism, and the natural sense of trusteeship that is part of Burkean conservatism. Do please come along. Environmentalism, and the world we live in, are altogether too important to be left to the left.” – Daniel Hannan MEP
 
Innovation Panel
Discussing the power of market competition to inspire clean and efficient innovation. Recognising that government regulation and individual benevolence, alone, are forecast to be insufficient to face the environmental challenges ahead, this panel will discuss the need for breakthroughs in green technology, and the regulatory structures that best allow these to take place. Significant innovation breakthroughs will make the green option the cost-effective one; such that economic development and environmental improvement can be concurrent phenomena as often as possible.
 
Trusteeship Panel
Discussing the power of private ownership to inspire the sustainable management of natural resources. While the first panel explored the power in what the market is able to produce, this panel will discuss the power in the processes of the market itself; particularly the ways in which private ownership can incentivise sustainable stewardship - and the “Tragedy of the Commons” that awaits its absence. Other trusteeship-based market concepts such as natural capital, carbon trading schemes and catch-shares will also be discussed here.
