Chair's Briefing - December 2017
Enjoy the holiday, there's another chaotic year ahead
Once again, we have managed to pull together a variety of authors and topics. Working on Challenge really brings home what a diverse group we are, with stories from across the world. The story from Kenya about single use plastic bags is an inspiration, and should be taken as an example for UK politicians. The energy articles come from a more techy perspective, while the piece from Catherine Bearder MEP demonstrates the need for international conservation. Closer to home George and Simon have both been busy getting things straight, literally at home, and sorting out our finances. Felix's article reminded me of the all too brief time I was a Young Liberal (it wasn't that long ago), and the importance of getting organised to effect change.
I hope you find some peace at this time of year, and get to spend some time with loved ones. Next year will probably be as chaotic (maybe more chaotic) than 2017, and we will need to be rested if we are to continue to campaign effectively.
Thanks for all your support over the year, I'm looking forward to sharing more articles, campaign ideas and good news in 2018
