A Second Climate Emergency People’s Assembly


11 am to 3:30 pm on Saturday, 25th January at Glastonbury Town Hall.

Glastonbury Town Council’s Climate Emergency Working Group will hold a second People’s Assembly in the Town Hall.  This is an opportunity for residents to collectively discuss the urgent situation created by climate change and ecological destruction and make decisions, so that all voices are heard and equally valued.

The Main Hall will be open from 11 am to 3:30 pm and will accommodate more people than the October People’s Assembly, when the small hall was filled to capacity. Presentations will take place between 11 am and 12 noon. The Assembly is scheduled from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm.

Presentations – 11 am to 12 noon:

  • Robert Macbeth (Glastonbury Growers Group)
  • Anna Francis (Frome Resilience Officer)
  • Sonya Bedford (Avalon Community Energy)
  • Jon Cousins (Green Deputy Mayor, Town and District Councillor)

People’s Assembly – 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm:

The next step toward building a resilient community.

Following our successful People’s Assembly in October, we will continue the discussion on these topics: Transport, Food, and the Local Environment. The Assembly will be facilitated by Extinction Rebellion’s Indra Donfrancesco.

This is an on-going process. In the short-term we need to have local strategies and actions for living with a reduced environmental impact. In the longer term we may even find ourselves having to provide basic services from our own community resources. Future assemblies will discuss other areas that need addressing: e.g. energy, health care, waste-disposal, education.

Please come to ensure your voice is heard!
