One Million Climate Jobs: The Alternative to Austerity

Tue 21 Oct 2014, 6.15/7pm, Quaker Meeting House, 10 St James St. S1 2EW

Sheffield Climate Alliance and The People's Assembly of Sheffield and South Yorkshire are happy to bring you the real alternative to austerity and cuts! Having bailed out the bankers to the tune of £1.3 trillion, the government told us we had to make huge cuts in our public jobs and services to pay for it. But we need a massive investment in climate jobs to avert the threat of catastrophic climate change. The argument about climate jobs is closely tied to the argument about public spending cuts: if this planet was a bank it wouldn't be allowed to fail!Speakers:Martin Empson, author, long-standing socialist and environmental activist will be introducing the One Million Climate Jobs booklet.Sam Browse: Chair of the Sheffield People's Assembly will link climate jobs to the fight against austerity.Oliver Coppard, Labour prospective parliamentary candidate and Dearne Eco-Vision Champion on how to make climate jobs a reality.Timetable:Sheffield Climate Alliance AGM 6.15-7pmOne Million Climate Jobs 7-9pmSY People's AssemblySheffield Climate Alliance on Facebook
