    Flourish or Flounder?

    Climate Change | Peak Oil | The Future | The Panel

    Welcome. Flourish or Flounder? That’s the big question. Will we adapt to the world and Flourish? or will we hide our heads in the sand and Flounder? To help find the answer to this question there will be a public discussion, in the style of BBC TV’s Question Time, at Castle Rushen High School on 12th July 2010. At this discussion you can find out what the government and the people of the Isle of Man can do to tackle climate change and peak-oil. The discussion panel is made up of several MHK’s, a sustainability consultant and an environmental campaigner. For further details of the panel click on the ‘panel’ tab at the top of the page.

    If you have a question you would like to put to the panel then please e-mail your question to flourishorflounder@doe.sch.im The panel members won’t see the questions before the event, so there’ll be no pre-prepared statements or carefully rehearsed answers.

    Admission to the discussion is free, however if you are attending please e-mail flourishorflounder@doe.sch.im with details of your group size, as this will help us with seating arrangements. If you can’t make it in person don’t worry, you will still be able to follow the discussion on Manx Radio who will be broadcasting the discussion over the summer.

    Audience: Open
