The Green Party's MEP for the south west, Molly Scott Cato, will be speaking on Brexit and the environment at Penryn Campus on Wednesday, November 1.

Since her election in 2014, Ms Scott Cato, who is a former professor of green economics, has represented the South West and Gibraltar in the European Parliament.

She is currently doing everything she can to make sure the UK keeps the closest possible relationship with its European neighbours, to defend the rights of EU citizens wherever they live, and to push for a clear plan that guarantees social, economic and environmental justice.

In a speech at the Green Party Conference, she called for a ratification referendum on any final Brexit deal, saying: “There is nothing undemocratic about this. We are asking for more democracy, not less. We are asking for a real democratic choice between two real, possible futures.”

And in recent weeks she has teamed up with The Good Law Project to press for the release of 50 government studies undertaken into the impacts of Brexit on the economy.

Ms Scott Cato will be talking in the Exchange Lecture Theatre on Penryn Campus on Wednesday, November 1, from 5pm.

She will also address a meeting at the Acorn Theatre in Penzance on November 2 at 7.30pm. Both talks are free.
