Report Launch – Healthy Indoor Environments, Challenges and Opportunities for Policy Makers – Summary of a Policy Workshop
26th April 2017
Recognising the cross-cutting nature of healthy indoor environments, and the significant challenge in achieving policy coordination, the UKIEG – with support from the Gas Safety Trust, Policy Connect and Professor the Baroness Finlay of Llandaff – organised a one-day workshop, held in London on 14th July 2016. The meeting brought together 15 attendees from different government departments, agencies, All-Party Parliamentary Groups and sponsor organisations. The discussion addressed:
a) issues and priorities from the perspectives of different government departments and agencies;
b) opportunities and challenges presented in addressing this issue;
c) whether better coordination might be required and, if so, how this could be achieved.
A summary briefing and the full report of this report was presented at an event organised by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Healthy Homes and Buildings held on the 4th of July 2017.
