She will address issues such as the nations environmental policy, as well as voter turnout.

In a statement on Facebook the society said: “In Britain we’re facing interlinked economic, social and environmental crises, in a society that’s working for the benefit of the few, not the many, while far exceeding the environmental limits of our fragile planet.

“People are fighting back. Levels of protest are at record levels, social media offers new and powerful tools for individuals of all ages to take action, and Britons are increasingly understanding that politics should be something you do, not have it done to you.”
