The consultation by the UK Government, Scottish Executive, Welsh Assembly Government and the Northern Ireland Administration seeks your views and ideas on what should be UK sustainable development strategy, and what we and others need to do to meet the challenges we face. The consultation was launched on 21 April.

Sustainable development is about making economic, social and environmental progress in such a way that we achieve development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Action is needed by all to make further progress. For more details see www.sustainable-development.gov.uk/taking-it-on/index.htm

The event will focus on the theme Helping Communities to Help Themselves. We will identify local good practice for sustainable development, the issues and obstacles faced by local practice and recommendations for regional and national guidelines to create better conditions for community-based initiatives for sustainable development.
