Proud to support the #Nottingham2023 #EuropeanCapitalOfCulture bid submitted today!!

WHY WE’RE WORTH IT

Nottingham is the perfect canvas to become a European Capital of Culture

Why Nottingham 2023? Because our city’s history is shaped by strong leaders and renegade thinkers. Thinking out of the box is in our blood, whilst equality is part of our DNA. Already, Nottingham is on track to become a connected ‘smart’ city and, together, we can shape its future to be a leader in culture and creativity for the UK and beyond.

The European Capital of Culture is granted to a city for a period of one year. The team bidding for Nottingham to achieve the status in 2023 has proposed a ‘cultural change’ programme that will transform the lives of people in the Midlands.

Only the Greens will fight against Fracking in Nottinghamshire!

Nottinghamshire County Councillors have already approved exploratory drilling for shale gas, which could lead to fracking wells in the Nottinghamshire countryside. And they may approve a second application for a site near Retford at a hearing on Tuesday 21st March.

greenFor information about where to get involved in anti-fracking events visit Frack Free Nottinghamshire on Facebook.

With these decisions, not only does the county council ride roughshod over the UK’s climate change obligations, but this irrational dash for fossil fuels with ever more extreme methods endangers and disrupts our local communities and wildlife.

We won’t bow to the fracking lobby’s dangerous agenda.

Only Green Party county council election candidates pledge to oppose any planning applications to begin extreme fossil fuel extraction processes such as fracking and shale gas, coal-bed methane, and underground coal gasification.

“Fracking is a nightmare! Toxic and radioactive water contamination. Severe air pollution. Tens of thousands of wells, pipelines and compressor stations devastating our countryside and blighting communities. All while accelerating climate change. And to produce expensive gas that will soon run out.”
