This blog post is for participants of a project investigating how black and minority ethnic (BME) communities in Greater Manchester could be affected by climate change.
The project involves 16 different organisations supporting BME communities locally – from lunch clubs and arts organisations to faith groups and campaigners. After two initial workshops to unpack the issues, the organisations are now working with some of their
service users to help them understand the implications of our changing climate, and to get their views on what could and should be done in response.
Using the comment boxes below, project participants can share thoughts, questions, ideas and concerns about how they’re engaging the people they support.
If you’re not involved in the project yourself but have suggestions for the organisations taking part, please feel free to add your thoughts.
We’ll report back on how the participating organisations got on after the final project workshop on 6 November.
The project is led by the National Council for Voluntary Organisations. You can find out more on the NCVO website: http://www.ncvo-vol.org.uk/vulnerable-people-climate-change
