My Favourite Pic! 21 Days To Go…


This is my favourite picture of Envirolution. Not because of any fancy shot or clever use of light but because it shows loads of people enjoying themselves in the park, engaging with all the wonderful activity. The reason we created Envirolution in the first place.

If you have any forgotten pictures from Envirolution please post them to us or tag us in them.

The Envirolution festival is back and is going to better than ever!

The 2016 Envirolution looks like its going to be our last festival ever, so we hope you will join us to make it extra special.

As ever its going to have some top quality bands playing over the two stages, loads of workshops where you can learn new stuff, amazing food from all around Manchester, games and activities in our fairtrade ground, loads of new stuff and many ideas and ways that you can use to change the world!

And of course, its all for FREE!

Becoming An Active Citizen

Thank you for those who have signed up as New Citizens in the Independent State of Great Manchester. If you have not yet, please click here.

An important role for any citizen is to be actively participating. We will post suggestion on our website of good sources of volunteering opportunities and other ways you can actively contribute to creating a Great Manchester.

Manchester Volunteer Centre (click for details)

This is a great place to start. MVC offer a volunteer training session every Wednesday and will match you with appropriate opportunities.

Platt Fields Park Volunteer Sunday (click for details)

Envirolution is located in Platt Fields Park. There is a great volunteer community in the Park who do fantastic work to maintain several areas. If you would like to help out they have an open session on the third Sunday of every month.

Manchester Critical Mass (click for details)

A great way to become active is to participate in a form of creative protest. Critical Mass is a worldwide mass meetup on bicycles. Its happens on the last Friday of every month, leaving from Manchester Central Library. It is a brilliant way to meet people and find out what is happening in your city.
