GlosVAIN has launched a major new campaign today with schools and child health at its heart and has issued a Press Release.
The key aim of the campaign is to engage with Gloucestershire’s children, their families, and schools on the issue of dealing with waste. This is because it would be Gloucestershire’s children in particular who have to bear the many and varied
consequences if the incinerator plans come to fruition.
Our campaign comprises the following:
With regard to today’s move by GlosVAIN, our chairperson, Sue Oppenheimer said,“We sincerely hope that today’s campaign launch will really make people sit up and think about what the incinerator could mean for them and their families over the coming years and decades. We are on the brink of our children becoming Gloucestershire’s young ‘incineration generation’ because they will be forced to live with the consequences of GCC’s plans and its refusal to consider more sustainable alternatives."
A wide range of consequences that could affect the younger generation relating to health, finance, the environment and economy are described in the Press Release.
The Press Release, Report, Letter and poster flyer can all be found in full on our new Publications page.
