About the Event

Carbon tax as a panacea to responsible consumption & production post-COP26

Overview: Recent agreements following *Cop26* have opened up several avenues for environmental research.

Offsetting the Climate Crisis through fiscal policy such as a *Carbon Tax* may be a viable approach; however such policies can only be achieved successfully when considering the impact on all enterprises involved.

In starting this Research on a local level [Dorset], relationships can be built between SME’s, the Local Council, Charities, and Research Institutions that aim to answer questions on *Sustainability, Consumption, Production* and to direct forward-thinking climate action on a regional scale. Additionally, in aiming to communicate and work alongside households/individuals, this event seeks to highlight the challenges these households face within a *Cost of Living Crisis*, heavily induced by the rising prices of emission heavy Oil and Gas.

This research will be somewhat focused on *Inequality* in the UK, propagated by the Climate and Cost of Living Crises, and what leaders on a local and national scale can do to mitigate short and long-term difficulties.

Planet Shaftesbury also received an agenda and map - please email to get a copy.
