Green Drinks Leeds June 2016 - The EU Referendum and the Environment: Greener In or Out?
Baht'ap, 11 Mill Hill, Leeds LS1 5DQ
On the 23rd of June, we will have the chance to decide whether the UK remains a member of the European Union or leaves. On the eve of the crucial vote, Green Drinks Leeds presents two speakers who will be making the case that a ‘Remain’ or a ‘Leave’ vote is greener. With so much of our environmental protection legislation transposed from EU law, is there really a green case for leaving?
In the ‘Remain’ corner, we will have Martin Hemingway of the Green Party, who will be making the case for remaining in the EU
In the ‘Leave’ corner will be Leslie Rowe, a green activist involved in the ‘Green Leaves’ campaign, who will make the case for leaving
We'll be at our usual venue of Baht'ap, close to the rail station and cycle hub, with cycle parking on City Square
