Kevin Smith

DATE: Monday June 22nd, 7-9pm, VENUE: BASH, 65-71 Scrutton Street, London EC2
When world leaders negotiate a new climate agreement this December, they will promote one solution above all others: carbon trading. The EU already has its own carbon trading system; in the US, Obama is working hard to push a ‘cap-and-trade’ system through Congress. But what is carbon trading? What is the theory behind it? How does it work in practice? And, most importantly, will it help us avert climate chaos? Discover the truth behind carbon trading in a unique workshop organized by the Camp for Climate Action. Kevin Smith (Carbon Trade Watch) will give a critical perspective on market-based solutions to climate change. There will also be a screening of the documentary ‘The Carbon Connection’, showing the real impacts of carbon trading on local communities, and plenty of time for questions and discussion. Come along to talk, listen, learn – and find out how you can take action for social justice and against climate change. Please email london [at] climatecamp.org.uk to book a place. Please put “carbon trading workshop” in the subject line."
