"Environmental politics should be included in all politics"
The report "Miljöpolitikens spelplan" was submitted on Thursday the 17 October, arguing that environmental politics cannot be isolated from all other politics but need to be included in the other political areas. The poorest people often suffer the most from environmental and climate change, and has the smallest environmental impact.Therefore environmental politics must relate to the environment in a broader and social context, where justice and security are key issues. The report gives 11 recommendations with the aim to more deeply understand what the long term needs are for progress within the environmental politics field.
