What can a green economy mean for Swindon?
What does the Green Party have to say about the economy?
Swindon Climate Action Network (SCAN) will be holding its AGM at 7.15pm on Wednesday June 26 in Swindon Central Library, in the 2nd floor reading area.
After a short time for formal business, the main part of the evening will be given to green economist Molly Scott Cato. She is Professor of Strategy and Sustainability at Roehampton University and is leader of the Green group on Stroud District Council.
Steve Litchfield, Chair of SCAN said: “As a group, we do not have any affiliation to any political party as we work with all colours of the political spectrum. We are very pleased to be able to welcome Molly as a representative of the Green Party and we look forward to hearing her take on creating a sustainable economy.”
Molly has written extensively on the economy and the financial crisis, but she is also interested in applying her ideas to practical applications. She is actively involved ‘Transition Stroud’ which is a network of groups working on the transition to a locally-based low carbon lifestyle. Steve Litchfield added: “We will be particularly interested in hearing how her ideas and practical experience might be applied here in Swindon”.
The meeting is open to all and admission is free.
Swindon Climate Action Network does not support or endorse any political party, but works with all parties who are concerned about climate change and want to do something about it.
