Appealing to voters in Walthamstow, the organisers of the hustings said: “Are you concerned about energy bills, food shortages, transport, air and water pollution, or just why the weather has got so weird? Would you like to see fossil fuels replaced and nature recover?

“Do you wonder how this could be achieved in the time frame that’s needed? How will the next government take action at a local, national and global level?

“Whatever your concerns about the climate and nature crisis, this is your chance to ask our general election candidates what they are planning to do.”

The hustings will take place on Thursday 27th June, 8-9.30pm at Harmony Hall, 10 Truro Rd, London E17 7BY.
