#Manchester #climate nuggets Jan 28th 2013 #

Hi all,

please try to get along to the Full Council meeting of Manchester City Council this Wednesday (10am, the Great Hall, Manchester Town Hall, Albert Square) to see Professor Kevin Anderson talk about climate change.  You can also lobby your councillors too. There are worthwhile actions to take even if you can’t get along.  For more details, see here .

All best wishes, and as ever, if you want to get involved in Manchester Climate Monthly, drop us an email at mcmonthly@gmail.com

Arwa Aburawa and Marc Hudson
