Climate Emergency Manchester news

The open letter, signed by a whole bunch of organisations, calling on Manchester City Council to institute the strongest possible climate scrutiny.  is about to get a bunch of new signatories – watch this space…

(See also CEM’s four page briefing about how the new Climate Emergency Scrutiny Committee could function as a vital node in Manchester’s climate response.)  And we have a new video about what has to be on the remit.

We urge you to write to your councillors and to Council leader Richard Leese. And please ask your friends to write too!

If you want to get involved in what we do – and you don’t need to be an “expert” in anything – please do get in touch via

Council news

Last week the six scrutiny committees met, Tuesday to Thursday, at 10am and 2pm slots.  Once again, Team SF (“Scrutiny Fabulous”) did a great job in giving summaries/detailed accounts of what was said, what was not said etc. For a summary of summaries, see Chloe Jeffries’ post here.

This week sees meetings of the Schools Forum (4pm, Monday) and the Health and Wellbeing Board (Wednesday 10am).
