Launch of IFoA Intergenerational Fairness Bulletin – Climate Change Edition

Monday 30 January 2017 16:30 - 19:00

Intergenerational fairness must be a priority for policymakers. There are many policy issues where a long-term view is essential if we are going to meet today’s needs, without putting younger, or future generations at a disadvantage. Over the course of 2017, the IFoA will produce a series of bulletins to raise awareness of the risks posed by not considering long-term implications and the potential consequences for younger and future generations.

The first of our bulletins considers the implications of climate change. We have sought to present a broad perspective on the issue, by inviting contributions from a range of voices in the debate, including thought leaders, academics and representatives from financial services.

At this launch event a number of the contributors to our bulletin will present their work. These presentations will be followed by a panel discussion with a chance for questions and answers from the audience.
