Group Coordinator: Liz Connell (click to contact)
When

The group will meet on the morning of the second Thursday in the month.
Where

The group will meet at a local Islington venue.

This group will discuss contemporary issues that confront our modern lives such as recycling and plastics and non-fossil fuels. The programme of topics will be determined by the members of the group. The scope will be broad to provide for suggestions and perspectives from group members about their particular interests. Some basic introductory material will be distributed before each meeting to encourage participation. There is the possibility of having speakers or experts from local green groups and of visiting establishments such as the local recycling centre. If you are an iU3A member you can join this group through 'Beacon' (the members system) or by emailing the Group Coordinator at the email address above. The subjects we wish to address will be selected by the group members.  

Our Programme
Green Issues topics selected for October 2017 – March 2018:
At the first meeting of the group in September we came up with a list of topics which hopefully will meet with general approval. There are several presentations on Renewables, but from different viewpoints. We're keeping a list of other topics suggested by members for following months. The presenter of each topic will send us reading matter in advance so we can be more informed at the meeting.

November 9 Talk by Matthew Homer, Islington’s Manager of Waste & Regeneration. Venue will be the Function Room at the Camden Head pub, Camden Passage as we’re inviting other iU3A members (not just Green Issues)
