A public meeting of the Sheffield Green Commission took place in Burngreave Vestry Hall on Thursday 12th February.

The Green Commission is creating a plan for a sustainable future for Sheffield. It will consider issues like green infrastructure, fuel poverty, health and climate change. The Commission is seeking assistance from the public, businesses and organisations to collect evidence and will then produce a final report with recommendations.

The evening was co-hosted by the Sheffield Climate Alliance and was filmed by Transition Chesterfield. It was opened with singing by children from the Woodcraft Folk and by the Sheffield Socialist Choir.

After the three main speakers, the Climate Alliance took over proceedings with a discussion exercise among those present, feeding their ideas back to the Green Commission.
