So, this is a little bit depressing, but scroll to the bottom of the post for a stunningly visually-inspiring of how things could look by the end of the year, if the Council and the “Steering” Group were to get their game-faces on.
FIRST If you haven’t already, please sign the open letter (the shortest version of it is to the right. The full version, with explanations, is here) and encourage your friends, family and work colleagues to do the same.
or else put “sign open letter” and your name in the subject header of an email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
SECOND Email the Executive Member for the Environment, Cllr Kate Chappell email@example.com and tell her that you want to help make these actions happen. (If there are some you think are wrong/don’t matter, say so. If there are others you think should be on there, say so!)
It would be great if you also copied your three ward councillors [find them by entering your postcode here] and also us – firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Councillor Chappell,
I live/work/study in Manchester [delete as appropriate]. Congratulations on becoming the Executive Member for the Environment.
I very much hope you will work to the best of your ability to make all of the nine actions in the open letter recently published by Manchester Climate Monthly happen as soon as possible. In addition, I think the Council should ….
I have not signed the letter because a) I disagree with item x, b) I don’t want to give any further encouragement to the feral editor of Manchester Climate Monthly but I endorse all the other actions/all the actions.
I am ccing in my ward councillors/the editor of Manchester Climate Monthly.
THREE If you want to get involved in the campaign to make all nine of these actions happen, fill in the survey below.
