CLIMATE EMERGENCY – PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY

Saturday 26th October 1pm-3pm @ Town Hall. Doors open 12.30pm

Glastonbury Town Council led a declaration on Climate Emergency when it passed a motion to address the impact created through the misuse of our planet by mankind. Many other councils have followed Glastonbury’s lead, including Mendip and Somerset.

Our town, countryside and the way we live will be increasingly affected from flooding, access to food sources, transport and communication. How can we ensure that we have a resilient & sustainable community that we will be proud to leave for the next generation? What practical steps can we take? What can we offer? To learn more, join us to listen to presentations and view exhibits.

Come along and learn more on the depth of the issue and find out how to make your voice heard.

Speakers include:

  • Bruce Garrard: Resilience, Restoration, Relinquishment and Reconciliation (the 4Rs)
  • Paul Lund on the United Nations Conference of People 25 (UNCOP 25)
  • Lindsay MacDougall St Marys Ward Mendip District Councillor and or Hayley Warren Mendip DC Climate Change Officer (to be confirmed)

After the Speakers a People’s Assembly will be held– this is a format which ensures every person’s voice is heard and together, a community plan of action will be created.
