Thursday, 6 November 2014 - 7:30pm to 10:30pm

A talk by Polly Higgins, the lawyer developing the Ecocide Act - the Law to protect the planet.

The Eridicate Ecocide campaign is in its final year and it is imperative that everyone gets behind the cause, signs the petition, and generally makes a fuss about it, standing up to call for the law to be introduced. Whether this means writing to your local MP, MEP, newspapers or sharing the campaign widely, we have an opportunity to make a real difference, and now is the time to do it.

Polly's talk, at Turner Sims from 19:30, will be about Ecocide and how humanity can reconnect to the natural environment and bring about worldwide change. A discussion panel including MEP Keith Taylor will then lead a lively discussion about issues that affect Southampton, the city and the people who live here, what Ecocide means to us on an individual level and how we can get involved.

Event organizer Daniel Payne said; “this is a fabulous chance to meet an amazing and inspirational speaker and find out more about Ecocide. Southampton needs to be actively involved in tackling environmental issues so I invite everyone to come along and get inspired
