Global poverty, climate change and environmental destruction feature constantly in the news, and are high up on the list of priorities for many key decision-makers. But what do they mean to us as individuals, within our own communities? How do we make sense of them, how do we respond - what can we do? This stimulating series of early evening talks brings together three very different perspectives and aims to explain some of the fundamental issues facing us today. A professor of social science, a lawyer from the Co-operative movement and an ecologist working for an environmental charity will each explain a subject they are passionate about, in an interesting an accessible way. This will provide the basis for discussion and further conversation as we all seek to find our own way of living amidst the confusion and challenges of the twenty-first century. All are at 6:30 in St Michael's Church Macclesfield.All welcome!
