#Manchester City Council to examine #climate and #steadystate economics Weds May 22nd #climatescrutiny

On Wednesday May 22nd, the Economy Scrutiny Committee of Manchester City Council will hear from climate expert Professor Kevin Anderson of the Tyndall Centre, as well as from local campaigners advocating for a steady state economy.

Economy_Agenda_May_2013The meeting takes place at Manchester Town Hall, Albert Square.  It is free to attend, with no need to book. It starts promptly at 10am, in Committee Room 11 (ask at the reception desk – it’s on the ground floor, and wheelchair accessible!)  Local activists are inviting people to attend a very informal pre-meeting to learn more about the issues and to meet like-minded folks. It’s at the Waterhouse Pub, 67-71 Princess St, from 9am.

As well as Steady State, there are other green issues on the agenda;

Hat-tip to the officer in Scrutiny Support who very promptly fixed a broken link on the MCC website so that this agenda and papers were accessible.
