Come along to our discussion on Monday 29 November – 7.30pm at the Exchange.
We are seeing some genuine commitment to action through COP 26. What’s beginning (we think) to tip things in the right direction is the external pressure from young people, committed environmentalists and people from indigenous cultures (who have nourished land in some of the most delicate ecosystms in the world) were united in common cause.
For our part, we know that Stroud has been and continues to be a crucible for radical thinking and precipating collective action to address our climate and ecological emergencies. Think of XR and the Law of Ecocide (now Labour policy)? Each of these had their genesis here, while members of our community made their own pilgrimages to Glasgow.
This gathering is designed to look at some of the quiet, committed work that continues to address these challenges locally here in Stroud. Cllr Mick Fealty will present on the policies and actions which our Town Council, one the first councils to sign up as an Earth Protector, is pursuing to ensure a future for our children and grandchildren.
But is this enough? What has COP 26 prompted you to do differently? What can Labour in Stroud do to further the goal of restricting global warming to 1.5 degrees?
Date: Monday 29th November, 2021. Arrive 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start and finishing at 9pm. Venue is The Exchange, Brickrow, GL5 1DF. Parking, Church Street Car Park.
It is free, but you can also donate to the Stroud Branch of the Labour Party here.
