The Brexit Series:

Policy Connect is organising a series of Parliamentary events to examine the impacts Brexit will have on the environment, energy and climate change, resources and built environment sector. With a range of expert speakers and attendees, these Parliamentary events will aim to inform the policy gap which the Government, UK industry and third sector have been exposed to following the result of the EU referendum on 23 June.

'The Brexit Series' will involve the production of four Parliamentary events between November 2016 and February 2017, and will be completed with a policy briefing disseminating the oral evidence collected to key policy makers in Government in March 2017.
