Tonight: “People’s Environmental Scrutiny Committee” – for a greener #Manchester

Want to get better at social media, research, video-making and a host of other skills?
Want to meet other people who are trying to make Manchester a greener, fairer place?

pescgoalsiconThe People’s Environmental Scrutiny Committee meets tonight, Tuesday 26th August at the Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount St.

The meeting is about meeting people who live near you, or care about the same things, and starting to think about how you can collaborate on projects that already exist or should exist.  The focus is always on building skills.

Two reports – “The Case for an Environmental Scrutiny Committee” and “Things you should know about Manchester City Council #1 August 2014” will be available. But we will not spend ages sat in chairs reading and then doing a sterile “question and answer” session. Instead we will mingle, brainstorm and plan.

If you can’t come (or hate meetings) that’s fine – there will be a post-meeting blog post that explains what happened, and what’s next.

There’s ALSO a “skills audit” that we’d love you to fill in (it will help with planning skillshares and workshops).
There will be meetings for the next 8 months (at least)

The next two are;
Mon 22nd September, 7pm, Moss Side Community Allotment, Bowes St
Mon 20th October, 7pm, Friends Meeting House, 6 Mount St

    Dear Marc, I’ve subm. the form but may not get to the meeting tonight as going away on Sat. pre dawn (per train you will be glad to know) and need to clear the decks domestically a bit. 

    I won’t promise to get to the next meeting either as it falls when the Lab. conf. is on and I may be out on the street.  

    Have put dates in my diary though.

    Keep fighting the good fight, but don’t bank on me or my friends writing many letters to the MEN for the next few weeks.  



    • Thanks Stephen!

      Got your form. You missed a corking meeting! The next one after Sept is Mon 20th October, Friends Meeting House again, 7pm sharp start.

      It’s a long-haul this, and I am sure you will be writing excellent letters in the near future.

      All best wishes, mate

      Marc Hudson
