CEMNESC overview report 2020 05 27On Wednesday 27th May citizens in Manchester will gather online to do three crucial things

  1. get to know each other’s campaigns a bit better
  2. scrutinise Manchester City Council’s (in)actions on climate and environment, – see the latest Hung Drawn and Quarterly report for gory details – and figure out how to best engage with the upcoming discussions around the Budget and the “Our Manchester” consultation, and other decisions around the future of the city.
  3. hear about some Climate Emergency Manchester projects (the petition and the Active Citizenship Toolkit) and pitch in with offers of help/critiques etc.

  1. Thank you to CEM for organising a useful and engaged meeting. Hope you get more people next time.

    1. thanks for coming!

      We will be doing another one – probably on the last Monday evening in June, just before the scrutiny committee meetings kick off.

      Will publicise it further afield too, but this one nicely attended and has generated some really good ideas and questions!


      Marc, on behalf of CEM
