About this Event

Over a matter of days and weeks, the coronavirus pandemic changed the way we live our daily lives. For many the impacts have been drastic. Many have lost their incomes and more have had to resort to food banks. The crisis has highlighted and worsened existing gender, income and race inequalities. Some businesses may never recover. People may continue to fly less but thousands of jobs in Surrey that depend on aviation will be lost.

Meanwhile, we have had quieter, clear skies, cleaner air, birdsong and being able to walk, cycle and run without worry. Local farm shops and food producers with short supply chains have blossomed as supermarkets’ "just in time" ethos ran us out of toilet rolls!

So what does a Green recovery in Surrey look like? Are we building back better, to a greener and fairer future? Or are we plunging back to a version of the old normal, but with more people in their cars and more pollution? Your ideas can help shape the future for Surrey.

Join this open discussion session. Thursday July 9th at 7.30pm by Zoom. Free.

Facilitated by Ruth Ritter, Green councillor in Redhill; speakers and panel discussion led by Jonathan Essex, Surrey and Redhill councillor and Steve Williams, Waverley District Council.
