WHEN HOPE DIES – ACTION BEGINS
These two events are in the centre of Muswell Hill on Sat 13th April. The ‘Haringey in a Time of Climate Emergency‘ event will give residents a chance to hear how Haringey is responding to the climate emergency that it declared on the 18th March and to demand that Haringey takes the best actions it can take to contribute to Global emergency actions.
It will be chaired by Catherine West MP, Jayne Forbes of Extinction Rebellion will explain the Climate Emergency, Cllr Kirsten Hearn, Cabinet member for Environment will introduce Joe Baker, Head of Low Carbon and we will hear from the youth that will be affected by impending catastrophe.
The panel will answer submitted questions and the bar will be open for a relaxed atmosphere, whilst visiting stalls in the hall by local environmental groups.

Catherine Budgett Meakin is interviewed by Oleg Korzun on her concerns about climate change and her hopes for the future.
Leonardo Dicaprio’s film is truly scary – not in the usual horror film way, but because it truly captures the devastation already being wreaked on our world. Leonardo sets the scene with the allegory of Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights, where mankind is originally innocent, then enjoys earthly delights and then suffers in a hell – featuring a part with an uncanny resemblance to the Satantic Mills.
For those who want to hear about the devastating effects of climate change already, the causes, real solutions and fightback by figures including The Pope, Ban Ki Moon, Elon Musk and ordinary people, this is a must see.
