Event Details

Did you know that the UK’s single largest carbon emitter and the world’s biggest tree burner, Drax Power Station in Yorkshire, is burning wood sourced from biodiverse forests around the world… and calling it renewable energy?

On Monday 17th October at 7pm BST, please join Biofuelwatch, Conservation North, Stand.Earth, the Axe Drax Group and the Stop Burning Trees Coalition for a webinar on ‘Drax and the Green Energy Con’ to discuss how we can help protect forests, wildlife, communities and the climate from Drax’s tree burning.

We’ll be joined by special guest speakers, Michelle Connolly from Conservation North, Tegan Hansen from Stand.Earth and Joe Irving from Axe Drax and the Stop Burning Trees Coalition who will tell us more about the recent BBC Panorama investigation into the logging and burning of trees from some of the world’s most precious forests in Canada.

We’ll also hear about Drax’s links to Barclays Bank and discuss how we can take action to protect forests, communities and wildlife around the world from Drax’s tree burning as part of the International Day of Action on Big Biomass on the 21st of October.

Everyone is welcome!!
