#beyondthecarbonbudget letter in MEN; Tues 16th July #climate #biodiversity

It’s been a while since the MEN has published a letter from MCFly (which is distinct from a while since ones were sent!).  But yesterday, well the times are perhaps a-changin’…

lettertomenReaders with a concern about biodiversity and climate change will be interested in two events coming up next week; one organised by activists, the other by Manchester City Council.

Tuesday 16th July will see the launch of a report about the state of biodiversity in Manchester, and what we all can do to improve it. It has been written by local campaigner Dave Bishop. That meeting starts at 12.45pm, at the Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount St.

From there, we will walk to Manchester Town Hall for a meeting of the Neighbourhoods Scrutiny Committee. That meeting will be looking at the next “Annual Carbon Reduction Plan” of Manchester  City Council.  The Council missed its target last year, but has a series of actions that it believes will help it reduce both its carbon footprint and its operating costs.

Both meetings are free and there is no need to book.  People who come will meet like-minded concerned citizens who want to take practical action to make Manchester a greener and fairer place.
