BGC: Bypassing the evidence?
Thu 27 October 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
In the third Big Green Conversation - our relaxed, cafe-style workshops - we will be looking at the research on traffic movement in Hereford and examine reasons behind the belief of many people that a bypass would improve traffic. We’ll be asking how we can respond in a democracy when public perception is at odds with the evidence.
Where? De Koffie Pot, Left Bank, Hereford
When? Thursday 27th Oct. Bar and food from 7pm. Event starts 7.30pm
Refreshments? Drinks, pies and scotch eggs available
Booking? Free event, but booking essential at EventBrite or via www.greenhereford.uk/bgc. You don’t need to print a ticket, just give us your name on the evening.

The Big Green Conversation is a new kind of sociable and participatory event, usually around a topic, speaker or film. Politics is the stuff that dictates much of our lives, but we feel the process has become very remote from us. This is a small attempt to start a local conversation on the important issues. The evenings are more about learning than argument and are open to supporters of all parties or none. You just need to be interested in a better, fairer world.
Readers might also be interested in an event looking at the technological alternatives to the private car - same time on 20th October, same venue, and organised by Herefordshire Green Network, which is a non-party environmental group.
