Tim Farron will be setting the scene for the way forward, creating awareness that, once we manage to emerge carefully and sensibly from the Corona Virus economic lock-down, we face the growing difficulties brought about by Global Heating. In the run-up to last year`s General Election, Tim said,

Climate change is the biggest issue we face. I am determined that the Government should take the big strategic decisions to fight it. That requires a revolution in renewables & a push for energy self-sufficiency, which would protect our environment, boost our economy & give us energy security.

The Government have moved away from Renewable energy. - They changed feed-in tariffs, so it is harder for businesses to invest in solar energy, the Guardian recently reported, "outing" the Government for providing some of the biggest bursaries for large Oil and Gas businesses."

After Tim has spoken there will be a Q & A session. If you want to ask a general question,
you can send one in in advance to
info@greenlibdems.org.uk marked "Q & A for Tim Farron".
We will also be taking live questions from the "floor" on the day.
