Summary:imageIn its Annual Review for 2005-2006, the SDC put forward an alternative vision for the future, a path to sustainability.

The review presents snapshots of a not too distant future in which the UK’s governments, consumers and businesses have taken significant steps to make our society sustainable. Schools are carbon neutral while hybrid cars are common. Energy use from buildings has been halved, slashing utility bills for householders and businesses. A citizens’ Council for the Future provides a national, televised platform for the public’s views on countering climate change.

In each chapter, we examine how to get from here to there, analysing progress (or lack of it) and explore the biggest barriers to its realisation.
