Climate Emergency Manchester news

Last week we published a great “Year Ahead” blog post from our friends at GND Podcast.

And an interview with Hannah Knox, who has a book about Manchester climate policy – “Thinking Like a Climate” out.

And today the latest GND podcast has gone up… with Marion and Pooja talking about a) the Student Climate Handbook and b) the scrutiny committee proposal

We are also busy with preparation for our appearance at the Resources and Governance Scrutiny Committee on Tuesday 9th February, where we will be explaining the rationale for last year’s petition for a seventh scrutiny committee.

Internally, we are making progress talking and thinking about how we improve our internal and external workings.  There will be some major developments about this in the coming weeks – watch this space.
