Calling all women out there. Do you want to learn or can you share practical skills like carpentry, plumbing, electrics, vehicle maintenance etc? We’re setting up a DIY support network to empower to help women build these skills or get advice in a mutually supportive, non-intimidating environment. If there’s something you want to learn (could be as simple as putting up a shelf) or something you can teach please get in touch. You can use the Free University Website forum to post requests, offers and ideas or email us at contact(at)freeuniversitybrighton.org if you’re too shy to post yourself.
Extreme weather: What's really going on? » Thu 13 Mar,   7:30 pm - 7:30 pm Extreme weather: What's really going on?
Environment minister, Owen Paterson, assured us that climate change “is something we can adapt to over time and we are very good as a race at adapting.” But, as George Monbiot wrote recently, "if two months of severe weather almost sends the country into meltdown, who knows what four degrees of global warming will do?" Is this all a storm in a tea cup or time to wake up and smell the coffee?
The recent storms and floods have certainly devastated people's lives around the country, but could this have been prevented and if so, how? What can planting more trees and dredging rivers really achieve in the scale of things, and how can we separate fact from fiction?
Join us for lively presentations and an informal discussion on recent weather events, climate change and how we should respond in Brighton and Hove.
Meet local people, environmental experts and politicians interested in the environment in the convivial surroundings of the Brunswick Pub.
Organised by Brighton and Hove Councillor Ruth Buckley.
All welcome.Read more »
