Welcome to the South Essex Area

According to the Smith Institute ‘Who Governs Britain Report’, our politicians come from business, finance, law or media backgrounds. Manufacturing, technical or science don’t even make their list of occupational backgrounds. Television documentaries are largely focused on the ‘human story’ whilst newspapers are looking for sensational headlines, so how can voters be expected to have a balanced view on issues of the day such as fracking or power generation?

The South Essex Area Programme aims to bring nationally acknowledged specialists to your town where you can gain factual information about a variety of Engineering related subjects including energy, transport and sports science. Attendees will have the opportunity to question those specialists directly. South Essex Area provides these talks, generally, for no entry fee and, in addition to our members, we encourage interested citizens to attend.
