On October 29th @ 1 PM EST the YSI Sustainability Working Group will be hosting Henry Leveson-Gower to speak for our webinar series: "How can we solve the environmental crisis with policy?"
Henry will look at new policy approaches based on institutional design inspired by Elinor Ostrom, innovations in social enterprise legal forms and charity regulation frameworks. He will show how this type of approach can address the failings of standard incentive based policy interventions. He will use the challenge of river catchment management to show how they could be applied.
This is part-two in this series and anyone with an interest is welcome to participate!
