Saturday 22 November / 3 p.m. / Castle Street Methodist Church Hall, Cambridge CB3 0AH
Saturday's event is about one of the real alternatives to the dogma of austerity. A new report by the Campaign Against Climate Change (CCC) takes forward the pressure group's argument for investment in one million climate jobs: those which 'lead directly to cuts in emissions of greenhouse gases, and so slow down climate change.' We need high-quality jobs like these – in renewable energy and public transport, for example – and not the low-paid, short-time, insecure jobs that characterize Britain under austerity. We also need a humanly viable world in which to work and play.
Ken Montague (CCC Trade Union Group) will introduce the report One Million Climate Jobs 2014, and the broader Time to Act campaign, at an event hosted jointly by the Cambridge People's Assembly and by Cambridge Friends of the Earth. Everyone is invited to listen and to speak, on Saturday 22 November at 3 p.m. at the Castle Street Methodist Church Hall.
