For a Future that Works: Trade Unions and the Environment
A NW TUC Conference Saturday, 21 July, 2012 10.00 am – 4.00 pm
Savoy Hotel, Queens Promenade, Blackpool, FY2 9SJ
Over the past 50 years our current global economic model has failed to deliver the sustainable society that we need. Poverty has increased in absolute terms. The gap between rich and poor is growing and at the same time, we have already breached the “safe operating limit” of our planet. We need to build a new sustainable and socially just economy. This conference will look at the role of trade unions in building a green and just Future that Works.
Main session speakers will include:
• Chris Baugh, PCS Assistant General Secretary
• Derek Wall, former Green Party principal speaker
• Clara Paillard, Merseyside TUC Green Officer
There will be workshop sessions on a variety of topics including Organising and Campaigning, Green jobs and Renewable energy. To register for this conference please e mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, union, e mail address and any dietary or access requirements.
