The Economy Scrutiny Committee of Manchester City Council yesterday heard from Professor Kevin Anderson about climate change and its impacts. His presentation was followed by a vigorous question and answer session.
The meeting, which was attended by over 20 members of the public, also heard from Mark Burton of Steady State Manchester on specific policies the City Council could start to implement and Mark Atherton of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority.
Here are the
first three of five videos of Professor Anderson’s talk. (Apologies for wonkycam!). The final two will be posted on this page this evening.
The Committee, chaired by Cllr Joanne Green (Harpurhey) is made up of councillors from many of Manchester’s 32 wards. Its areas of interest include “economic growth, strategic transport, employment and skills development, tourism, the voluntary sector and the regeneration of neighbourhoods.”
An account of the meeting has already been published at Steady State Manchester, and MCFly’s account will appear imminently.
