On Thursday 27th November at the Huddersfield Methodist Mission we will be holding an ‘ECO-nomy’ public meeting exploring ways in which we could create a green economy that works for people and planet.
We are really pleased to have four speakers for this event:
- Simon Brett from the PCS (Public and Commercial Services) Union will be speaking about the PCS’ approach to green workplaces (http://www.pcs.org.uk/en/resources/green_workplaces/) including green reps (http://www.pcs.org.uk/en/resources/green_workplaces/green-reps/index.cfm) as well as the union’s support for climate and social justice campaigning (including, since 2009, support for the ‘One Million Climate Jobs’ report – for more details see next paragraph).
- Martin Empson from the Campaign Against Climate Change will be speaking about the latest edition of the ‘One Million Climate Jobs’ report http://www.campaigncc.org/greenjobs and the ‘Time to Act’ mobilisation http://www.campaigncc.org/TimetoAct that will happen in London on March 7th 2015.
- Chris Fitzsimmons from Kirklees Citizens Advice will focus his presentation on ‘Energy Best Deal – Fuel Poverty& Efficiency’ (see the CAB’s recent report ‘Raising Standards, Cutting Bills’ www.citizensadvice.org.uk/raising_standards_cutting_bills_june14.pdf).
- Tosh McDonald, Vice President of the ASLEF trade union, will be speaking about the ‘Action for Rail’ campaign http://actionforrail.org/
The public meeting will take place from 7pm-9pm in the theatre of Huddersfield Methodist Mission. Doors will open from 6.45pm. After presentations there will be a refreshment break followed by a Q&A session (further details ECO-nomy public meeting poster).
We are always grateful for any practical help with the smooth running of these sorts of events. Please get in touch if you will be able to assist.
Let’s demand an ECO-nomy for people and planet:
*Jobs *Skills *Services *Prosperity *Health & wellbeing
*Energy Security *Climate safety
