Magpie 30 – Global Forum

Anon (1994) Global  Forum. Magpie 30, p9


We would refer you to page eight of our summer 93 Magpie when doubts were cast on the future of this event. Well, it’s not quite gone but, as well as having considerable troubles, it has been watered down somewhat. The festivities at Castle-field have gone and all we are left with is the conference, which is being attended by delegates of 50 cities from around the world, the theme of which will be “Cities and Sustainable Development”. However, many voluntary groups want to put on events to celebrate the occasion and these will be community activities and gatherings with exhibitions, entertainment and visits and will be co-ordinated by North West Focus who are compiling a friendly and accessible programme of events. This will be available in libraries, information centres etc. The celebrations will run from 18th June to 3rd July. We will be taking part in this Cousin of Global Forum with a Sustainable Industries event, time and place to be decided, and a walk to highlight the environmental destruction at Bruntwood Meadows and Abbey Pond. If you would like to take part in/help with these events, phone Ian Brown (437 7040). Our walk will meet up with Walk for the Earth’s London to Manchester walk which is to highlight the Government’s lack of commitment to the principles of Rio ’92 (Details: Penny Eastwood 0422 844710) 

Look out for details. Take part. Get involved. Let’s show those Politicians what Sustainable Development really means 

And here  is the aforementioned Summer 1993 comment-
