A week in local Green Politics

Been a busy week with the MEP elections in addition to the usual. We've been doing flyer delivery, polling agent work yesterday and had a busy Extinction Rebellion meeting on Tuesday .

Got my rosette for Polling agent duty yesterday
Sutton XR- this week's meeting was facilitated by Bioregional/One Planet Sutton 
Following workshops and discussions we came to the conclusion that these were the main objectives that we would prioritise which include 1) Campaign around food and plastics 2) Renewable Energy, 3) Beddington Farmlands Nature Reserve and the Incinerator 
Did a walk last week for Bioregional checking out the proposed Visitor experience area for Beddington Farmlands. A new project proposal has been submitted to the Council this week. 

I'm also leading a walk at Roundshaw downs at the end of next month. All are welcome. More details here:

We will be involved in discussions over the next few weeks with Viridor and Sutton Council to see how they can commit to addressing the local climate and ecological emergency. 

Interesting discussion hosted by Simon Mitchell about birders and environmental politics:HERE
