HOW WILL LIVERPOOL MEET THE CLIMATE CHALLENGE?
Saturday 16 February at 2pm...
Film Focus: Liverpool's Response to Climate Change
A special showing of Who killed the electric car? (tickets £3.50 - box office 0151 707 4450 - or on the day) in FACT Screen 3 Wood Street Liverpool 1
How are local communities, businesses, and our City's Capital of Culture activities aiming to keep the emissions down? A debate is to be kicked off by local environmentalists and others, following the showing of an acclaimed film - back at FACT by popular demand - on how global oil interests acted to hold back action on climate change, even as the UK's chief scientist described this as "the greatest threat to our planet".
Hosted by Frank Kennedy of Friends of the Earth NW and Don Thompson of Merseyside Environmental Trust.
Speakers from the Co-operative Bank, Transition Towns and Liverpool's Culture Company will open a debate on how fit Liverpool is to become a 'low carbon city' - from the perspectives of business, of an active community group and of Capital of Culture itself.
Followed by 'speed dating' chat sessions in the Bar until 4.30pm. members of the public are invited to watch the film. Extra time is promised if needed (but no penalties!)
