July 2019

No guarantee of completeness. Events may be cancelled by the organisers without informing us. Unless otherwise indicated, events are NOT organised by the McMonthly crew.
Presence in the calendar is not an endorsement of quality (see footnote)

See also a) the calendar on Friends of the Earth’s website (though hilariously the weekly digest hasn’t even bothered to mention the CliimateEmergency motion being debated on Weds 10th)

b) the xrmcr.org website, which has been up for a couple of months now.

sadly neither gives anything approaching a global overview. If only there were some sort of action network for climate in Manchester. Oh well.
