Climate Emergency: A People’s Assembly
Clare Gage's update on the second assembly organised by Create Change Chesterfield.
How can Chesterfield create a more environmentally friendly future?
11am- 4pm Sunday 21st July 2019
Assembly Rooms, Market Hall, Soresby Street, Chesterfield
This People’s Assembly will bring together the people of Chesterfield to tackle the problem of how to make our town more environmentally friendly. We will look towards a future where our planet is healthy and our town plays its part in supporting this.
People’s Assemblies are a way for a group of people to discuss issues or make decisions collectively, where all voices are heard and valued equally and no one person or group are able to dominate the process. The day will be run by TalkShop, a team of experts in deliberative democracy. The atmosphere will be relaxed and friendly, with creative touches throughout the day.
We will use the day to consider what kind of things we can do now, together, and what kind of things we can do to influence others including the council.
Everyone who lives in, works in or cares for Chesterfield is invited to attend.
Chesterfield Borough Council and Toby Perkins MP have shown a commitment to this People’s Assembly. Follow up sessions are booked when plans will be presented for discussion on how to progress.
We intend for this day to create real, lasting change in Chesterfield.
Childcare is available on the day. There will be a creche and creative art sessions for children primary school age and under. All young adults of high school age are welcome to join the main group.
Lunch will be provided.
Hosted by Create Change Chesterfield and The RSA.
