If you had one wish for the future of your area, what would it be?
With the general election around the corner, we’re bringing local people, businesses, young people, parliamentary candidates and councillors, scientists and artists together for a lively debate on the future of the area.
Electing the Future will take place at:
The United Services Club, 268 Balham High Road, SW17 7AJ
on Wed 18th March 2015, 7pm-10pm
You’re invited to take part in this lively debate or sit back and listen. We’ll be exploring what active citizenship really means, and we’ll encourage conversations to envisage sustainable change together.
Commenting on the event, David Thorne, co-chair of Transition Town Tooting said,
“There’s an election in May, but with people more disengaged then ever from mainstream politics, Transition Town Tooting will seek to host a different kind of conversation about the future, which steers away from tired old party political platitudes.”
Following on, Belinda Sosinowicz, co-chair, Transition Town Tooting said:
“We’re seeing a lot of change around Tooting – some positive, some challenging. There are facilities at risk, services that are stretched, and new investments changing our local landscape. People care deeply about these changes. We aim to hear the voices of engaged local people and work out sustainable alternatives for the future together to build a more resilient community. That’s why we’re staging this event.”
A panel of local voices, including parliamentary candidates, will take part in the discussions and respond to concerns, questions and suggested solutions.
Tickets are free, but spaces are limited, so please do book at the Electing the Future Eventbrite page. We look forward to you joining us.
