Film night - Burned

Film night - Burned

  • Alexandra Suite, Royal Wells Hotel (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Free screening of the award winning documentary.

Tunbridge Wells Friends of the Earth are partnering with Biofuelwatch to bring you "Burned: Are trees the new coal?" - a powerful documentary about forest destruction for biomass electricity and the subsidies that enable it.

Biofuelwatch is currently campaigning to get subsidies for burning wood in power stations revoked and redirected towards genuinely renewable energy. Biomass power station operators receive these subsidies (with Drax Power Station on its own receiving more than £2 million every day), despite the fact that it damages the climate, forests and communities.

Q&A with a Biofuelwatch representative at the end of the film.

Find out more about the film and watch a trailer. There is more info on Biofuelwatch's campaign here.

Donations are welcomed to help cover the costs.

January Social meeting
Jan

January Social meeting

The new year gives us an opportunity to try something new - please join us for our first social meeting for 2019.

Steve Keevil works as a consultant clinical scientist in the NHS. He is head of one of the largest medical physics departments in the country, with around 140 staff working to ensure safe and effective use of medical technology throughout a major NHS foundation trust.  He is also Professor of Medical Physics at King’s College London, where he leads a centre providing health technology assessment support to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). He is a former President of the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine (IPEM), the professional body for medical physics and clinical engineering in the UK.
 
Steve has been a Europhile since the early years of his career, when he worked on collaborative research projects involving multiple EU countries, culminating in a PhD on standardisation in clinical nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. He specialised in MRI physics for most of his career, and in 2003 became aware of a new EU directive which would have created significant difficulties for clinical and research use of MRI scanners. This began a surreal period involving press conferences; meetings with MPs, MEPs, ministers and EU commissioners; and giving evidence before parliamentary committees in both Westminster and Brussels: all things for which a physics degree is not particularly good preparation! The directive was put on hold and then finally repealed and replaced in 2013. For his leadership of this work, Steve was made a Fellow of the European Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB) and an Honorary Member of the Royal College of Radiologists. The experience gave him valuable insight into the EU legislative process and particularly the system of checks and balances through which EU institutions work together to make laws, and the ways in which member state governments and EU citizens can contribute to the process.      
 
Steve attended a comprehensive school in south London before going on to study physics at Oxford. Although he has not been politically active in recent years, he is a former vice chair of Scientists for Labour, a socialist society affiliated to the Labour Party, and of a Branch Labour Party in London. He now lives in Tunbridge Wells with his wife Hella, a Dutch citizen, and son Thomas, who is a sixth form student at The Skinners’ School. In his spare time, he is a church warden of St James’ Church. He is a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers and a Freeman of the City of London (and yes, he has driven sheep across London Bridge).
  
It should be a fabulous evening...

‘As for Stephen Keevil, a lowly physicist in Guys hospital not known for much in anything (I would not call him a scientist) keeps on about low NHS funding, but had privilege education, reminding Harriet Harman.’
Anonymous comment, Iain Dale’s Diary, 10th April 2010 http://iaindale.blogspot.com/2010/04/labour-scientists-fail-to-declare.html
 
‘[Stephen Keevil]… the man who took on the EU, essentially single-handed, and appears to have won. Or at least is ahead on points’ Chair’s introduction, invited presentation at IPEM MR Safety Update, May 2007.

Jason J Hunter - International Trade Negotiator

Jason J Hunter - International Trade Negotiator

TW-IN welcomes Jason J Hunter to Tunbridge Wells on the 7th December 2018.

Jason J Hunter is an International Trade Negotiator at the highest level, representing such parties as the government of Hong Kong. 

He has recently become something of a social media sensation given his experience in his field, due to the various reports of the state of our government’s negotiations with the EU in terms of Brexit. As a result he has been interviewed on a number of platforms recently, from BBC News to Radio 5 Live.

Jason has subsequently been travelling around a lot of Europe meeting with various interested parties, representatives of the EU itself, and indeed members of Irish government, given the particular issues over the border. This will be a great opportunity to hear first-hand from, and indeed question, someone on the front line without the interpretation the media, and a must attend event for anyone interested in the economic future of the country.

Jason is also one of the stars of the YouTube Brexit discussion podcast series.
