Public debate: Fuel poverty, climate change and social justice

Public debate at the Jubilee Library, Brighton, UK
Part of the Brighton Fringe 2013.

Panel:

  • Kirsty Alexander, Head of Communications, Nuclear Industry Association
  • Thurstan Crockett, Head of Sustainability, Brighton and Hove City Council
  • Doug Parr, Chief Scientist, Greenpeace
  • Jim Watson, Research Director, UK Energy Research Centre

Chair: Alice Bell, Research Fellow, SPRU Science and Technology Policy Research, University of Sussex

At a time of rising unemployment, energy and food costs, many families are struggling to heat their homes. But can fuel poverty be tackled without tackling climate change? And will tackling climate change - and other planetary boundaries such as water and land use - and keep the planet safe but make the poor poorer?

This debate will use the local issues such as fuel poverty and fracking to look at the global issues of environmental sustainability, poverty and social justice.

7 - 8.30pm
