Despite the Bath and Northeast Somerset Council (B&NES) failing to honor its contract with the World Council for Health to host a 2000 attendee conference in the heart of Bath on 20-22 May, the Better Way Conference will move forward as planned.
The conference, which was scheduled to be held at the Assembly Rooms, will host more than 60 internationally acclaimed speakers from the world in the areas of science, medicine, media, and law. Speakers include Robert F Kennedy Jr, The HighWire’s Del Bigtree, GB Media’s Neil Oliver, journalist Maajid Nawaz, and many more. The full speaker lineup can be found on the conference’s website.
The Bath and Northeast Somerset Council states its reason for withdrawing its commitment was that the conference would bring their ‘name and reputation’ into ‘disrepute’.
In response to the sudden decision by B&NES, World Council for Health co-founder and Better Way Conference organizer Dr Tess Lawrie stated:
‘Given that Bath has been an internationally renowned home of healing for hundreds of years—and humanitarian discussions are of critical importance for the world right now—this is an extremely short-sighted decision from B&NES.
‘The Better Way Conference is all about an evidence-based approach to medical decision making, sovereignty, empowerment and reimagining the future of healthcare. We have many thousands of people supporting this conference both in-person and online and we fully intend to run the event as scheduled.’
After witnessing similar attempts at preventing experts and professionals from speaking, gathering, and sharing information at venues and events around the world, organizers at the World Council for Health were prepared for the possibility of such a situation. Despite efforts by B&NES to hinder its success, the Better Way Conference will go ahead as planned on May 20-22 at a different and more open-minded venue.
Virtual and in-person tickets for this one-of-a-kind event remain on sale at betterwayconference.org.
