Weekend Green School 15-17 February, EarthSpirit Centre near Glastonbury. A two-day intensive but informal residential educational event, co-hosted by Green House and Green History. It will feature expert presentations on core aspects of green politics and philosophy and the opportunity for about 30 participants to debate them with each other and the presenters in a relaxing green environment. Speakers include Amelia Womak, the Deputy Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales, David Taylor from Green History, and Rupert Read and Anne Chapman from Green House, as well as an expert on European green parties and their different approaches. Topics covered will include: the origins and history of the Green Party in Europe and in the UK; ‘ecologism’, and how it differs from other political ideologies; Greens and science; climate change, hope and despair; and how the fundamentals of green political philosophy can help us address today’s problems. We hope to keep costs low to enable participation, with different levels of charges for different ‘packages’ of accommodation (from the luxurious to the basic). Precise costs will be advertised in early December, but anyone interested can secure their place (without obligation) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
