Spring is almost upon us!

Hello everyone! Hope 2017 has been good to you all so far. Our preparations are well underway for this year’s festival, which will take place on June 3rd, at Platt Fields Park in Fallowfield.

In preparation for one of the greatest things to happen in Manchester this summer (we may be a little biased!), we will be hosting a fundraiser at the Old Abbey Taphouse on April 1st from 8pm following on from the Energise Festival at Hulme Community Garden Centre. So come on down for vegan cakes and party vibes as we start April with a bang!

Here’s the link so you can find us on Facebook and be social and all of those lovely things: https://www.facebook.com/events/1268152016606264/

See you soon!

What is a ‘Low Carbon Community’?

At the Envirolution Festival 2013 we want to contribute to Manchester’s Climate Change Action Plan – Manchester A Certain Future.

One of the headline targets of M:ACF in 2009 when it was created was “to engage all individuals, neighbourhoods and organisations in Manchester in a process of cultural change that embeds ‘low carbon thinking’ into the lifestyles and operations of the city.”

We want to ask what does this actually mean? How are we to understand this so we can take it forward and develop meaningful targets that we can achieve together.

I invite you to being this conversation now so we can make the most of the opportunity Envirolution presents.

I have started discussions on Linkedin and ProjectDirt, plus will bring together comments from twitter and facebook.

So lets start with, What is a ‘Low Carbon Community’?
