Our speaker will be Ben Webster, who spent 24 years working at The Times, 11 of them as environment editor. He won the "Environment Journalist of 2024" award at the UK press awards. Ben now works as a freelance investigative journalist with stories published in the Guardian, Observer, The Times and the Daily Mail. His recent work includes investigating emissions from cruise ships in Southampton, and further afield looking at some background issues relating to COP28.
His talk will include issues relevant to the Waterside, including how he exposed the greenwashing tactics of Exxon and the cruise industry.

There will also be a WaterCAN fund raising raffle. We hope you will join us.
