Introduction by Martine Bisenius
European Union Society Committee Member

The future of the natural environment is likely to play a prominent part in the Brexit debate. This is particularly the case for Scotland, as most environment powers are devolved, but much of its environmental regulation is framed around or underpinned by EU law. Important decisions will have to be made on how Scotland’s environment is regulated and protected in the future – and it’s unclear when, how or who by those decisions will be made. This event will explore these challenges and encourage public discussion of them.
