As Green Councillor Andy Fewings reminded us in a recent event about 'Participatory Democracy', every pound we spend IS a political act as each decision impacts people and places in our community and well beyond.
For this event (RSVP below) we want to showcase ‘politics’ with a small ‘p’. So, we invited a few folks who are living examples of the policies within our GREEN Green New Deal to share their story.
You will hear from two employee-owned businesses (Riverford Organic and Chelsea Green Publishing) and a community-owned movement (Fibreshed), along with a GREEN councillor who will share some of the ways having a GREEN in local seats supports the shift to a green economy.
Our goal with this event is to remind us that Better IS Possible - because in many ways, Better is Already Happening.
