Green Drinks Leeds October 2012
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (BST)
Leeds, United Kingdom
We have a topical double bill for you at October's Green Drinks Leeds on the subject of Fuel Poverty. As fossil fuels become scarcer and we recognise our need to move away from them, and as the climate changes (with potential for the UK to get much colder according to some climate models), Fuel Poverty is set to become an increasingly important issue.
We welcome Robert Curtis, from Leeds City Council, to open for us, talking about the Council's strategies and actions in relation to Fuel Poverty. This will be followed by an introduction to Fuel Poverty from TIDAL.
Join two of TIDAL's new fuel poverty campaign team, Kristina and Stefan, for an introduction to the key issues and challenges of securing a safe and affordable energy future for Leeds. There will also be opportunity for discussion and to find out more about Leeds Fuel Poverty Action Network.
There will be the usual opportunities to network over a drink. We hope to see you there

INTERACTIVE: We will ensure there is a fully interactive session after the movie which will enable you to engage your grey matter to think and talk green to give more a workshop feel to the session.
NETWORKING: In addition to the panel, there will of course be the usual ‘Great Green Banter’ that we are renowned for both before and after the presentation, giving you plenty of time to network.
EVENT DETAILS: arrive & mingle from 6pm; speakers start around 7.15pm; conversation flowing until around 10. Feel free to pop in for a bit, or stay the whole evening - it's free & you only pay for your drinks.
Dates for your diary: Every 4th Tuesday of the month is our regular meeting date
