a date for your diaries: the evening of Tuesday 20th November sees the launch of the “Beyond Growth” report, looking at how Manchester can move towards a steady state economy. It’s at the Mechanics Institute on Princess St. There’ll be lots of mingling, opportunities to find out about things happening in Manchester that you can get involved in and generally interesting people to talk with.
