Malvern Labour Party to hold 'How Do We Save the Planet?' event at The Cube

CLIMATE change will take centre stage at the Malvern Cube next Saturday, July 20, when the town’s Labour Party branch holds its presentation on ‘How Do We Save the Planet?’.

A panel of experts and campaigners from eco-friendly and wildlife organisations will discuss the main issues and mooting ideas on the best ways to combat a climate catastrophe.

Among the experts will be Jacob Ainscough, Labour member and environmental policy researcher, Nadia Cassandra from Extinction Rebellion and Kadees Mohammed, from Birmingham Labour for a Green New Deal.

Others have yet to confirm and there will also be representatives from eco-friendly businesses and environmental groups who will have stalls showcasing environmentally friendly changes people can make to their lifestyles and communities.

After this year’s local elections the Malvern Labour Party has eight town councillors and its first district councillor since 1997 and said it wanted to make the environment its top priority.

Coun Samantha Charles said: “We have no time to waste – we are living in a climate crisis that will spiral dangerously out of control unless we take rapid and dramatic action now.

“This is no longer about the distant future.

“We are talking about nothing less than the irreversible destruction of the environment within our lifetimes.”

She urged people to join in the discussion and demand change from the Government.

Doors open at 12.30pm and tickets are free.

The Cube closes at 2.30pm and many people from the meeting will be heading to Priory Park afterwards for Malvern Town Council’s Bands in the Park event.
