the minutes from last night's meeting are here for you to read. Please spare a couple of minutes to have a look at them, cause a few important issues have been raised, especially the fact that an EGM (EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING) WILL BE HAPPENNING SOON, to discuss issues such as:
- GREEN ACTION AND VEGANISM: STOCKING HONEY OR NOT?
This is a selection of books that are held in the Green Action Libary which is kept in a trolly outside Green Action. Leeds University has a much larger collection of books we have a list of some of them that might be relevent to people in Green Action in the Alternative Leeds university library list.
In the 2008 referendum one of our members Aly put forward the idea to phase out bottled water from the union run shops, and to install water coolers and have reuseable bottles for sale in the shop. Bottled water is hugely environmentally damaging and we felt that students were also being ripped off give it costs 500- 2000 times more than tap water. P&P and Green Action spent hours and hours creating publicity and campaigning to have to phased out, resulting in a record referendum turn out.
What is Green Action?
Green Action provides and promotes alternatives to conventional, commercial lifestyles. We have a food co-op, an allotment in Hyde Park and hold regular meetings to discuss other activities, such as workshops and other campaigns. Green Action aims to bring together people from diverse groups and point people towards alternative ways of living using both the network support of Radical Routes and the experiences of our varies members.
