Climate Emergency Manchester news
Two weeks we released our latest “Hung Drawn and Quarterly” report about the City Council’s (in)activity on its climate promises.
Last week the six scrutiny committees of Manchester City Council met. And our fantastic team of supporters not only endured death-by-Zoom, but also wrote blog posts giving you the low down. This is the first time that CEM (or anyone, we think) has covered all the committees in a Scrutiny week. It’s a big deal (for us: we know we should get out more, but #pandemic, and a HUGE thank you to those who watched and wrote). You can read the six here
- Resources and Governance
- Children and Young People
- Neighbourhoods and Environment
- Communities and Inequalities.
The common theme? Money’s too tight to mention, and the climate emergency is largely forgotten/ignored. It’s almost as if a seventh scrutiny committee is urgently needed.
This Wednesday the Executive meets, to rubberstamp a bunch of reports.
Monday 18 January 18:45 – 20:00 XR North meeting. “UK Actions strategy 2021 presentation and Q&A.”
