As part of the In Our Nature Programme we held Manchester’s first ever Community Assembly on climate change which enabled people from across the city to play a key role in shaping our response to the climate emergency! 108 residents from across the city participated in the Community Assembly that ran from August-September 2021.
Residents were split into groups and took part in workshops on transport, buildings and energy, food and agriculture, fashion and retail and the emotional impact of climate change. Watch this film to find out what was involved and how these groups worked together with experts to create action plans for how their local areas and the city can reach Net Zero.
