Green jobs - or dangerous green wash? Zoom meeting 6.30pm July 4th on Zoom


Campaign Against Climate Change Meeting July 4th, 2023 6:30 PM  to 8PM on ZOOM


Speakers: Ellen Robottom, Campaign against Climate Change trade union group, 
Stuart Boothman, Stop Burning Trees Coalition,
Don Naylor, HyNot (campaigning against HyNet greenwash and the Whitby hydrogen village) 
Claire James, Campaign against Climate Change 
Greenwash is not always easy to challenge: the claims to offer climate solutions; the PR offensive in local communities; and promises of 'green jobs' that in reality are neither as numerous or as environmentally friendly as promised. But whether it’s a ‘zero carbon’ coal mine, heating homes with hydrogen, importing wood to burn in power stations, ‘sustainable aviation growth’ or offsetting, there are common themes that can enable a reality check on greenwash claims and misleading jobs promises. In this meeting we'll aim to draw these out with the aims of challenging greenwash more effectively, supporting local campaigns, and working towards a genuine Just Transition.

Until our economy becomes one in which ''being green'' is central to everything that is made, sold, and given sufficient time to flourish, it's unfair and unreasonable to dismiss the concept of a green economy as ''greenwashing.''
