In Brussels for the first ever meeting of the European Green Leadership Council.
A meeting of fellow leadership Green teams all across Europe incl Green Government ministers & Green run regions & councils.
The Green Party are proud to be part of our European (& global) network.
Great idea - I did a brilliant similar course Uni of New England 30 years ago.
We need more such cross-disciplinary thinking and hunts for sources of #socialinnovation
Matthew Taylor 🔶 🇪🇺 🇺🇦 They are correct that you can't be in CPTPP and the Customs Union at the same time, unless the EU joins the CPTPP (it almost certainly won't).
However, if faced with that choice the UK could just... leave the CPTPP.
A new take on #GlumCouncillors .
And John Major's cones hotline to mind
'Seeds used to grow food have become radically less diverse since the 1900s.'
And that's a huge threat to #foodsecurity .
🗣️ 'Provision of free social care must be central to any green new deal.'
Natalie Bennett lays out our policy for free social care for all who need it 👇
'One truckload of clothing is sent to a landfill or burned every second.'
Treating the planet as a mine and a dumping ground. Future is sure going to ask what we thought we were doing
'RIsks in the shadow banking system are one worry because it’s “very difficult to understand the size of it.”
'Data showing strip-searching of children outside of custody suites, shows that the police cannot be trusted with the devastating power to strip and intimate search anyone, let alone children.” Me in Evening Standard tonight.
#Green vision for social care: free to all who need it, a central part of the #Green NewDeal.
The profit motive having no place in provision. Universal Basic Income-plus for unpaid carers.
#socialcare #healthcare #privatisation
The #financialsector - a threat to the security of us all
#NoNewNuclear - because we should not be consigning difficult, expensive, dangerous problems like this to the future
Hideous waste and environmental damage.
Reusable PPE (and provision of washing facilities for it) needs to be stepped up fast
The bottom line - we need #agroecology , not industrial farming systems
