On the morning of Wednesday 10th July, the full council meeting of Manchester City Council will debate a motion calling for the declaration of a climate emergency.
The motion is being put forward by two backbench councillors, Eve Francis and Annette Wright. The final text of the motion will be released at the latest by Wednesday 3rd July (hopefully sooner).
Climate Emergency Manchester is extremely keen that all councillors, across the 32 wards of Manchester City Council are lobbied politely, firmly and repeatedly by people who live in those wards. The motion needs to pass, and it needs to be as strong as possible.
PLEASE contact us, on either firstname.lastname@example.org or @climateemergmcr if you live in Manchester (any ward!) and want to be involved in this lobbying..
Regardless of how strong this motion is, and whether it passes, we will be continuing to collect signatures on our petition.
