we hope you can make it along to “Exchange for Change” on Saturday 27th April from 1pm to 5pm. It’s an opportunity to share your skills and knowledge, meet other people who want to make Manchester a greener and fairer place, and perhaps get involved in some other projects! It’s free (we will be asking for donations).
More to follow…
Also, we have got the details of our short story contest all sorted. Two thousand words (in English) on the subject “Manchester (UK) in a warmer world.”
Arwa Aburawa and Marc Hudson
