We’re hosting a meeting at which voters can find out more about how European Union membership affects another of the great issues of our time – tackling climate change.

Our guest speaker is Sarah Holmes, a specialist in environmental and planning law. Sarah will outline ways in which being in or out of the EU could help or hinder the action needed to reduce the risk of dangerous global warming. A question and discussion time will be chaired by Richard Smith of Mount Kelly.

This will be the first open event at our new Tavistock venue – Local Matters Community Space. See below.

Transition Tavistock is not campaigning for either side of the referendum question, but encourages voters of all ages to research the issues and use their vote. As a group involved in projects to build a sustainable future, they want to see more attention given to environmental questions in the debate.

Sarah Holmes is a Legal Director at national law firm Bond Dickinson LLP.  She advises clients in the public and private sectors and lectures widely.  A former trustee of the UK Environmental Law Association, she is the Vice Chair of the Chartered Institute of Waste Management South West Centre Council, a member of RenewableUK and chairs an award winning environmental and education charity.  Her article ‘BREXIT and environmental law’ has been described “a rigorous and unique analysis of the possible implications of a Brexit on the domestic environmental framework”.
