Hi, the first #climateemergencymcr fortnightly bulletin is up here.
Crucial things –
- There’s a sign up form (super-quick) for the campaign. We want to know what skills you have, what skills you want, and then match you with people (but never ever without your permission, and we’ll never give your email addresses to anyone else).
- Anyone who lives, works or studies within the boundaries of Manchester City Council can sign the petition calling on Manchester City Council to
declare a climate emergency, with a target to be “zero carbon” by the year 2030, with a proportionate share of Manchester Airport’s emissions (35.5 percent owned by the Council) included in the carbon budget it sets.
i.e. you do NOT have to be 18 years of age. If only there were a whole bunch of school children super-committed to take action on climate change…. No, wait!
