February General Meeting – Follow up

Democracy and climate: how can we get politicians to do the right thing?

The topic of the February general meeting, held on zoom, was Democracy and climate: how can we get politicians to do the right thing?  We heard from Lena Swedlow, from Compass, on their view that electoral reform is a prerequisite, and from Alfie Prothero, from Hope for the Future, on their model of engaging politicians.

The meeting was recorded, so if you missed it, or were there but can’t get too much of a good thing, you can watch again on this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/rec/share/yOAD7ZTKNcohD4BjtgIvzB9evp5lLzZeF05-drYszLcfNvo94PdAvIatzs4Bm4j9.MRdR-kgcb64qwDlR
