The Liberal Stemmocrat: August 2020 Newsletter

As many of you will be aware, the Lib Dem Leadership election is well underway - with ballots send out and many votes cast. Candidates Ed Davey and Layla Moran have been sharing their visions and have already taken part in over 20 hustings events (with more to come) before ballots close on Wednesday 26th August.

Last night, I was privileged to chair ALDES' Q&A with the two candidates, challenging them on all things STEMM - from Digital and Data to the Green Agenda, and STEMM education to the UK R&D Landscape.

As a cancer research PhD student, it was a particular privilege for me to be able to pose questions on Health and Social Care, a theme which we hope to explore further in ALDES in collaboration with other groups in the party. Do get in touch if you're interested in being involved.

If you'd like to watch a recording of our Q&A event, you can find it at https://www.libdems.org.uk/livestream. We'd love to hear your feedback. Thanks again to all those who tuned in and submitted questions and to those who helped in organising the event.

Wishing you all an enjoyable August. Signing off from a very hot Richmond Park,

Emma
