So many hustings


As we quickly approach the election date of May 5th 2016, make sure that standing candidates know about the issues that are important to you and one way to achieve this is by attending a husting event. A 'husting' is a temporary panel or platform that candidates participate in during their election campaign. Hustings can be hosted by anyone and are usually themed to help focus the questions and discussions. They are a chance for the electorate to quiz candidates directly on issues important to them. Some people are intimidated by standing up and asking a question in public, but luckily hustings are changing formats to make them more accessible to people whether that is through candidate cafes or online debates. Below are some upcoming hustings themed around the environment and climate change and am sure they is one to suit everyone's taste and timetables.
