Standing up to Drax webinar: protecting forests from Drax’s tree burning

Did you know that UK power stations burn wood sourced from biodiverse forests around the world to generate electricity…. and call it renewable energy?

Drax Power Station is the world’s biggest tree burner, and currently receives over £2 million every single day in renewable energy subsidies to burn millions of tonnes of wood pellets – amounting to more wood than the UK can produce annually. Much of this wood comes from clear-felled forests in Canada, Estonia, Latvia and the Southern USA, which are home to rare and endangered species and which protect local communities from flooding and extreme weather.

To find out more about these amazing forests and how we can help protect forests, wildlife, communities and the climate from Drax’s tree burning, please join Biofuelwatch and special guest speakers from Estonia, the Southern US and Canada at 7pm BST on Thursday 15th April for our “Standing Up to Drax” event.

We’ll learn more about the impacts of Drax’s wood burning on forests and communities around the world, and discuss how we can all take action to stand up to Drax through the Cut Carbon Not Forests campaign.

We’ll also hear about plans for an exciting online Drax AGM protest on the 21st of April.

Everyone is welcome!
