IGEM conference on 21st November 2017 – Films to raise awareness on prime time TV in Ireland

Stephanie Trotter attended an IGEM conference 21st November 2017 and Owen Wilson from N. Ireland showed their films (see below) and everyone seemed very enthusiastic because they were such an entertaining way of raising awareness. They were shown on prime time TV in Ireland. The cost was about 550,000 Euros for showing them for one year – not even the cost of one death!

Do please watch them and let me know what you think.

The ad from this year’s CO Awareness Week can be viewed at:

The video for Tommy’s single is available at:

A picture of a giant yellow feather was put on a building. This was just put up with no press release or anything to explain it but then, because of the previous films, there was a social media storm!

Grenfell Tower: INQUEST’s role in ensuring truth, justice and accountability 

INQUEST are deeply shocked by the tragic fire at Grenfell tower and have seen first-hand the devastating impact on the affected communities. This has been exacerbated by the insensitive and inadequate response by both national and local Government.

There is rightly acute public concern about how this disaster will be investigated and we issued a statement to outline our view that a judicial public inquiry needed to be set up urgently. Inquests are limited in scope, do not allow for survivors (that are not themselves bereaved) or those with a wider interest an independent voice and cannot deal directly with the complex far reaching questions. For the inquiry to have the trust and confidence of survivors and bereaved they must be consulted with meaningfully on its terms of reference, to include the context, circumstances and aftermath of the tragedy.

Bereaved and survivors must have access to non-means tested public funding for legal representation on an equal footing to that of public authorities and private bodies. No stone must be left unturned, the truth about this tragedy exposed and those responsible brought to account.

We now have a dedicated section on our website here to support those directly affected.

Great day. Met many interesting people. Superb new premises.

Was introducted to the Secretary of State Greg Clark MP. Wasted no time in telling him about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning although to do him justice, I think he already knew. I told him that we had lobbied for prime time TV warnings about carbon monoxide.
