Joan Ruddock , Minister for Climate Change, Biodiversity and Waste welcomes the ECA's initiative to hold a conference on the Environmental and Informal Adult Learning saying: "40% of the CO2 emissions in Britain are the direct result of actions and decisions that we, as individuals make, each and every day. I warmly welcome this initiative which brings together a distinguished panel to help draw out the key messages which the Government, funders and learning providers need to address." "If the environmental challenges which face us are to be met, it is imperative that we unlock the talents and potential of people in every community to help make a difference. I fully support the Educational Centres Association’s objective of promoting the informal learning needed to help people understand 'greener living'."
