TIME:
7PM

PRICE:
£5, FREE for under 26

DESCRIPTION:

The theme for this conversation is how do trade deals and corporate law impact on the environment?

As the political rhetoric heats up ahead of COP26, the international conference due to take place in Glasgow in November, this Tweed Green series offers you the chance to join the conversation.  Three sessions over three weeks bring together speakers with varied experience of environmental activism, and fresh ideas about how we can each make a difference through personal, local or national initiatives.

Session 3: Climate Change versus Corporate Law

Global corporations have had a major impact on the environment over recent decades, and continue to contribute towards climate crisis.  Jean Blaylock (campaign and policy manager for Global Justice Now), discusses with Christa Hook (previously with Medecin sans Frontieres) what we need to understand about trade deals and corporate law.
