Simpol-UK Policy Forum on Climate Change 28 February

In our 2006 survey of Adopters' priorities on the policy content of SP, climate change was voted the nr. 1 priority by UK Adopters. As a result, we are holding a meeting open to all Adopters and the public to provide more information on this urgent issue and how it can be tackled. The meeting will be held at the House of Commons, Committee Room 16 on Wednesday 28th February 3pm - 5pm. Speakers invited are:

Aubrey Meyer, Director of the Global Commons Institute will speak on Contraction & Convergence, a global policy to deal with climate change which has received widespread public support and has been submitted for possible inclusion in the Simultaneous Policy (SP).

Norman Baker MP, former campaigner on the environment for the Liberal Democrats.

A representative of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research which advises the government on climate change.

John Bunzl, National Coordinator of Simpol-UK and trustee of ISPO will speak about SP as an alternative yet complementary means by which citizens can drive their politicians and governments towards cooperative international action to combat climate change.

Attendance is free but please email or call on 020-8464 4141 to let us know if you are coming.

Many thanks
John Bunzl
