Tomorrow evening Natalie Bennett, former leader of the national Green Party will be speaking at a collaborative event between Lancaster University Politics Society and Lancaster University Young Greens, to discuss the shale gas industry, green energy and Natalie’s view on fair public administration.
On 6th October, the Government overruled local councillors and approved the plans of Cuadrilla to explore for shale gas in Lancashire. Many residents, politicians, and scientists object to the development of the ‘fracking’ industry in the UK.
Decisions about energy policy made today will affect the health, and indeed security, of future generations," said Natalie, "so I am delighted that groups at the University is taking a lead on hosting a public discussion.
Before speaking at the University Natalie will be meeting with a group of local women to talk about women in leadership roles - focusing on overcoming the challenges and barriers that women face when in the public eye.
She will also be meeting with Xeina Aveyard, the Green’s candidate in the forthcoming University ward by-election.
