Becoming the 'greenest government ever' : sustainable development in government : reporting period 2006-2009 /

by Blakeley-Glover, Jaime | Sustainable Development Commission | Clench, Callum.

Publisher: London, U.K. Sustainable Development Commission 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2010Summary: The UK's new government has pledged, in the words of David Cameron shortly after the election, to be "the greenest government ever", with far-reaching plans to protect the natural environment, tackle climate change and promote sustainability. There is much that it can do to encourage businesses, communities and individuals to take up this challenge, and one of the best places to start is on its own doorstep - taking action to ensure that its own workplaces meet the highest standards. As the UK moves into an era that will be dominated by the enormity of the budget deficit and the increasing urgency of addressing climate change and other serious environmental problems, it is vital that Government ensures that sustainable development structures, strategies, and tactics employed to drive improvements in operations and procurement are in place. These need to be sufficiently ambitious to meet the challenges faced and make the fullest possible contribution to the UK's economic recovery, longer term well-being and resilience. Understanding the mutually reinforcing nature of different operational activities, their longer term effects and the potential benefits of taking a more innovative approach to running Government's business will help it work towards its wider policy goals through its procurement and operational activities.Availability: (1)

Conclusion: Interpreting the Imperial Legacy for Social Welfare / James Midgley and David Piachaud Summary: The British Empire is part covered three centuries, five continents and one quarter of the world's population. Its legacy continues, shaping the societies and welfare policies of much of the modern world. In this book, for the first time, this legacy is explored and analysed. Colonialism and Welfare reveals that social welfare policies, often discriminatory, and challenging to those colonised were introduced and imposed by the mother country.' It highlights that there was great diversity in rationales and impacts across the empire, but past developments had a major impact on the development of much of the world's population. Contributions from every continent explore both the diversity and the common themes in the imperial experience. They examine the legacy of colonial welfare - a subject largely neglected by both historians of empire and social policy analysts. This original book shows that social welfare today cannot be understood without understanding the legacy of the British Empire. Academics, specialised students with an interest in comparative social policy, history of social policy, imperial history, colonialism, and contemporary third world social policy will find this book invaluable to their studies.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Cutting it : the 'Big Society' and the new austerity /

by Coote, Anna | New Economics Foundation.

Publisher: London, U.K. New Economics Foundation 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2010 Bibliography : p. 26-28Summary: Far from being a temporary buzz-phrase, as some suspected, the 'Big Society' seems to have taken off and taken hold in a big way. Across British national and local government, across considerable chunks of the business world and great swathes of the third sector, it is a hot topic of discussion and the driver of a massive re-branding exercise, as the phrase is swiftly bolted to countless projects, events and documents. What does it mean? What difference could it make to our lives? What are the opportunities and threats? This report takes account of emerging plans for government action as well as the public spending review. It also reflects what we have learned from a wide range of charities, community groups and government officials at meetings they convened to discuss what the 'Big Society' could mean to them.Availability: (1)
