Given Lewisham Council’s recent declaration of a climate emergency, how can we as a community respond locally to what seem to be global challenges?
On Wednesday 17 April RUSS will be joined by Dr Robert Biel, a lecturer on environment, sustainable development and urban agriculture at University College London. Robert is also a practitioner of low-input urban agriculture as well as an activist in the Transition Towns movement, with a particular interest in how the current crisis might act as a trigger for a new community resilience.
Date: Wednesday 17 April
Time: 7 – 8.30pm
Venue: Café of Good Hope at PLACE/Ladywell (261 Lewisham High Street, SE13 6NJ). The closest station is Ladywell.
The talks are open to anyone. They are free to RUSS members; a small donation towards the cost of the room hire would be appreciated from non-members that can afford it.
RUSS Co-Chair Kwame Lowe-Benjamin said he was especially keen to attract local people to the talks and to get their thoughts on how the organisation might develop in the future. “We want to hear about the issues and ideas that are important to local people so that we can make RUSS a truly community-led movement, as we seek to build sustainable neighbourhoods and genuinely affordable homes in Lewisham and beyond,” he said.
