This week's Thursday Lecture takes a look at the now sadly defunct Green Action group, a network of people who came together to fight against local and global environmental destruction.

Presented by Noel Cass, the lecture starts at 7.30 and will be held at the Friends' Meeting House, next to the train station. The Thursday Lectures are free, but suggested donations of £1 are gratefully received to cover costs, including tea and coffee.

A Local History of Green Action.

Green Action was an informal collective of people in and around the Lancaster area, who wanted to take action on environmental and related issues. The group existed almost two decade, and was generally coordinated through meetings held at the university.

In this weeks Thursday Lecture, Noel Cass, who was personally involved in a great many Green Action activities, will talk us through its history, exploring how the group worked, the successes they had, and the mistakes it may have made. It should be informative and inspiring, and, who knows, may help revitalise this once strong and active group.
