Eco Question Time event - ask about climate change

Published Tuesday 22 March 2016

An 'Eco Question Time' event - based on the BBC TV programme Question Time with David Dimbleby - will take place in Market Harborough and you can get involved.

The event focuses on issues and concerns related to climate change and takes place at Market Harborough Baptist Church (opposite the Co-Op, with plenty of car parking available nearby) on Friday 15 April 2016 from 7pm to 8.30pm.

It will be chaired by Canon Brian Davis, who with help from representatives from local churches put on the highly successful Saving Our Planet conference last October, attended by about 130 people.

Guests on the Eco Question Time panel will include:

  • Revd Nick Cook (Baptist Church Minister)
  • Sir Edward Garnier MP
  • Councillor Blake Pain, Leader of Harborough District Council
  • Oliver Savage, Chair of Sustainable Harborough
  • Professor John Twidell (Director of the AMSET Centre Ltd, previously held the Chair in Renewable Energy at De Montfort University)
  • Darren Woodiwiss (Green Party)

Please send in questions - if you wish - on Climate Change, its effect on the environment and the local community, government and local council policies on climate change and the environment, etc, to Brian Davis

It is assumed that those sending in questions will be in the audience and be prepared to ask the question from the floor (if it is selected for debate).  They will be given a chance to respond to the answers from the panel.

Everyone is welcome - especially those with views or concerns about climate change.
