Yet action also brings opportunities for: energy independence, unpolluted water and air, reversing wildlife decline, better health for humans, liveable towns and cities, and jobs created in sustainable technologies.

The meeting will include:

Address on Zero Carbon Britain by Paul Allen from the Centre for Alternative Technology, Wales
