Main agenda item: Climate Emergency and the Arctic Meltdown. Speaker - Phil Thornhill, National Co-ordinator, Campaign against Climate Change
Tuesday 23 October, 7.30pm, Brent Trades and Labour Hall (Apollo Club), 375 High Road, Willesden, NW10 2JR
Dear Friend -
The next meeting of the steering group of Brent Campaign against Climate Change is open to anyone who wants to find out more about the current situation with global warming and our activities locally as a campaign group. Could I invite you to join us on 23rd October and ask you to pass on this e-mail to any of your friends and contacts, or members of your organisation, who might be interested in coming along.
Over the last few years the occurrence of droughts and floods in many parts of the world, including here in Britain, have pushed up food prices and posed even greater dangers for some of the world's poorest people. They suggest that man-made climate change is already something that affects us all, whatever our social background and cultural or religious beliefs. This situation will get worse unless we work together to press the people in power to take the necessary steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on fossil fuels as a matter of urgency.
Brent Campaign against Climate Change is the local group of the national Campaign against Climate Change. It works to raise public awareness on these issues and lobbies for practical measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our steering group is made up of representatives of different community and faith groups, trade unions and political parties, as well as concerned individuals. We want to increase its representation so that it reflects the whole of the Brent community and is able to operate even more effectively.
If you are able to come along to this meeting, the details are below and in the attached flier, which we hope you will display on notice boards. A map and directions are also attached. If you can't make it this time, please let me know if you'd like to receive further information. If you are member of community organisation, political party, faith group or trade union branch, we would be very happy to send along a speaker to one of your meetings. Please try to get us invited.
I hope to hear from you, or possibly see you on 23 October.
With best wishes,
Ken Montague, Secretary: Brent Campaign against Climate Change
