Individuals, families, communities and whole societies have suffered immensely at the hands of the coronavirus epidemic and will continue to do so until we can find a cure.
However, the lockdown measures imposed to prevent the spread of the virus have also reconnected us with our communities, and shown us the value of clean air, sustainable living and green spaces.
Like many others, we believe this a once in a lifetime opportunity for a ‘green reset’, to enact measures and policies that will decarbonize our city as quickly as possible, as part of an international movement to keep global warming to an absolute minimum.
‘Ten Proposals for a Green Reset in Coventry’ is an attempt to translate the Green New Deal to the local level, while also addressing the immediate needs of people in Coventry as the government eases lockdown measures.
Come and discuss our proposals, which are not only designed to provoke the Council into taking seizing the opportunity for radical climate action, but are meant to inspire dialogue with communities about how these ideas can be adapted to the needs of real communities.
The meeting will take place online, and those who sign up will be sent a Zoom link closer to the time with a unique password. The meeting will be introduced by Coventry Green New Deal chair, David Ridley and Zarah Sultana, MP for Coventry South, followed by participatory break-out sessions.
