GM and coffee!

By brother helped design these bags!
The next Coffee House Discussion, complete with coffee (of course!), all kinds of other drinks and scrumptious cakes, is at Star Anise cafe in Stroud, (behind the Old Painswick Inn, Gloucester St.), on Friday, October 26th from 7.30-9.30 pm. This month’s topic is:

GM Crops
-Are they already being used in our food and textiles?
-Are some worse than others? Are there potential benefits?
-Can they reduce world hunger?
-What are the risks to us and to the environment?
-Are they coming – what are the Government and EU plans?

Come and listen to the introductory speakers and then have your say or just come and listen!

Coffee House Discussions are free, friendly, welcoming events that are open to everyone. They attract people of all ages, all political persuasions and philosophical viewpoints, those with particular views and those who just want to explore where they stand. All opinions and ideas are treated with respect and heard with an open mind.  The aim is to explore a variety of views, and then get a chance to express your own in a warm, friendly, welcoming environment. We hope that everyone leaves a Coffee House Discussion with a broader understanding of the subject than they came with.

The discussions have been running every month since June 2005, and previous topics have included: ‘Can we make poverty history?',  'Does science have all the answers?’, ‘The end of oil?', and 'Stroud in 2020 - Does it have a future?'
