Speaker's Corner

Have your say

‘Bunch of idiots.’ That’s what one man muttered loudly as he walked past people selling tickets for a talk by international environmental campaigner and barrister Polly Higgins. I prefer “bunch of do-ers!”

Polly was coming to Ashlyns School in Berkhamsted to talk on the subject ‘Dare to Be Great: Eradicating Ecocide’.

Polly is lobbying the United Nations to make ecocide an international crime and campaigns globally, so the least Transition Town Berkhamsted could do was fill the hall!
