Time: Sat 11th, 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Location: Resilience College
We are bombarded daily with more information on the problems of climate change – Air Pollution kills over 50 000 people in the UK each year, Plastic Pollution is now in each of our bodies as well as our food and water, fracking threatens earthquakes, cancer and the devastation of our countryside, whilst the latest research shows that we urgently need to stop burning fossil fuels to avoid Hothouse Earth. Dr. Larch Maxey and Laura McQuillian, co-founders of new campaign group switchfromfossils.org will outline how we can all support the growing movement away from fossil fuels and address some of the worst crises we face – from fracking and climate change to plastics pollution and air pollution.
