As the UK basks in the early summer sunshine, Stop Climate Chaos coalition member, World Development Movement (WDM), has been out and about raising the temperature with a series of talks and debates under the banner, ‘Turning up the HEAT’.
The events - a run of three interactive and virtual discussions on climate change and corporate power - culminate this evening at the Manchester Conference Centre with a debate entitled: ‘Does climate change mean we should restrict aviation and tourism?’
With the Climate Change Bill scheduled to be voted on in Parliament this summer, now is as good a time as any to get involved. At present, the Bill does not sufficiently account for the UK’s share of international aviation and shipping emissions.
Speakers are set to include John Stewart (Airportwatch), former Labour energy minister, Rt Hon Brian Wilson MP (Flying Matters), Ricardo Navarro (CESTA El Salvador) and Juliette Jowit (The Observer).
The sky will indeed be the limit at the hopefully heated event at the Manchester Conference Centre, Cockcroft Theatre, Sackville Street, M1 3BB between 7.30pm - 9.30pm.
If you are unable to make it person, WDM will be streaming the debate live on their website.
WDM is a democratic movement of individual supporters, campaigners and local groups who work in partnership with other organizations in the UK and around the world to tackle the underlying causes of poverty.
