Over 100 people packed out the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institute for a local-election hustings conceived and convened by Bath Quakers on climate and environment. Speakers from five groups – Bath Indendents, Conservative, Green, Labour and Liberal Democrat – set out their positions and took questions from a highly engaged audience.
A satellite photo of three simultanous tropical storms set the tone the climate and environment hustings.
The evening was filmed. Dozens of those present signed up to form a loose citizens’ network to keep the future council focussed on this agenda and to ensure that promises made to the electorate are kept.
Bath Quakers conceived and convened the meeting, working with BRLSI which provided the setting for the event.
