Global Poverty, Climate Change and Britain’s Carbon Debt
A public meeting with
Douglas Alexander, Secretary of State for International Development
Deborah Doane, Director of the World Development Movement
Reverend Ian Galloway, Convenor of the Church of Scotland’s Church and Society Council
Friday 19th March, 6-7:30pm, Wynd Centre, 6 School Wynd, Paisley
Climate change – we caused the problem, but it’s people in the developing world who are facing its worst impacts. We’ve already used more than our fair share of carbon, so it’s time for Britain to pay its climate debt. Come along and ask the Secretary of State why the UK Government wants to loan money to Bangladesh through the World Bank, rather than paying proper compensation for our climate debt.
Free event. All welcome, no need to book.
