Sunday 26th April 7:30pm. Ealing Transition Pre-Election Question Time Event with the BBC’s Stephen Sackur

We hope you will be able to join us for our forthcoming sustainability-themed pre-election event, which will follow the format of the BBC’s ‘Question Time’. This is a great opportunity to meet your local candidates and find out what they have to say about building a sustainable future in Ealing. We have invited candidates from the main five parties contesting the Ealing Central and Acton constituency, and four of the candidates have already confirmed that they will participate. We are also thrilled that Stephen Sackur, presenter of the BBC’s current affairs show HARDtalk, and Ealing resident, has agreed to chair the event.

We would like to get questions from a wide range of people involved with Ealing Transition, and for these questions to be submitted in advance. It may not be possible to include all the questions submitted, but we will aim to make any selection representative of the issues raised. If you have a question for the event, please send it to steering@ealingtransition.org.uk by this Friday, April 17th. Topics might include (for example):

  • Local economic resilience
  • Community cohesion
  • Energy costs and sustainability
  • The relationship between food and health
  • Awareness of global responsibilities

The event will take place at St Mary’s Church, St Mary’s Road, Ealing W5 5RH. Entry is free, but any donations to help us cover the cost of staging the event will be most welcome. After the main question and answer session, there will be an opportunity for further discussion over tea, coffee and locally-made cakes.
