Hi Gavin,quote for publication please, that takes in how many responses have been received by the initial deadline, the different methods used to get responses from ‘hard to reach’ groups, and the reason for the extensionThanks.
Naturally, I did not receive any response.
So I ask again, this time in public.
I’d also like to know what specifically the social media strategy was – twitter, facebook, youtube.
I’d also like to know what the mainstream media strategy was. Was a press release sent out, were individual journalists at the BBC and Manchester Evening News contacted? Did stories in fact appear – if so, when?
You were not involved in the 2009 process, but I recall well that there were many public meetings and writing groups that led to a plan for 10 years. Over 100 people were thanked in the glossy book that was produced (I’ll happily supply you with a copy). Given that this “plan” to be launched on Monday is for three times as long, and takes us all the way to ‘zero carbon’, presumably there have been at least three times as many such meetings and events. But I seem to have missed them. All.
They also don’t appear to have been listed on the official calendar for the group. (See screen grab below from this morning). Then again, neither is the launch. Perhaps time to have a work with the very well paid staff about this?
Or perhaps, given the farce where only two of the 10 members showed up, and the Executive Member for the Enviornment almost never showed up, you abandoned meetings?
