Upcoming Event: People’s Environmental Scrutiny Committee #Manchester Mon 7th July

Do you want to see Manchester preparing properly for the threats of climate change?
Do you want to meet other people who are doing useful things in their own neck of the woods?

Manchester City Council, now totally dominated by one party (Labour) has been, at best, flubbing on climate change for years.  That’s extremely unlikely to change, given how even the smallest promises are considered breakable, unless there is regular external scrutiny.  Thus, a “People’s Environmental Scrutiny Committee” – where we learn, share and spread the skills needed to keep tabs the Council, while meanwhile (and more importantly), swap ideas, knowledge and skills for local action.

More details to follow, but for now, here’s a date for your diary then – Monday 7th July from 7pm.

At the Manchester Social Centre, Subrosa, 27 Lloyd St South, Moss Side.

P.S. By one of those odd coincidences that the universe throws up, the PESC meeting is the the night before the Neighbourhoods Scrutiny Committee of the City Council “scrutinises” the latest report about the Council’s “Annual” “Carbon” “Reduction” “Plan” (sic).
