Climate Change is the most serious threat facing humanity. As the earth's temperature rises, millions of people face the devastating consequences of increasingly unpredictable and worsening weather.
Trade Unions have always been at the forefront of the fight for social change, and this conference will discuss exactly what change is needed to limit Global Warming and how Trade Unionists can play their part in this struggle.
Leading figures from the Trade Union and environmental movements will speak at a series of workshops and plenary sessions, to discuss Carbon Trading, Greening the Workplace, Alternative energy, Building Sustainable Cities and Transport, and the role of Global Treaties beyond Kyoto.
Delegate fees are £10 per person.
