This year, The Climate Coalition have come together to organise a Speak Up week of action across the UK from 8-16 October. Communities across the UK will come together to Speak Up for the love of the people, places and cherished things affected by climate change.
Speak Up Manchester is part of the national week of action. You will have the opportunity to hear how climate change is being tackled on a local level but also hear stories from El Salvador on how people are being affected globally. There will be speakers from Manchester Action on Climate Change, the People’s Plan and representatives from an NGO in El Salvador. You will have the chance to feed into Manchester’s public consultation on climate change as well as take action to lobby your MP. Finally, Speak Up Manchester will give you the opportunity to meet other people who are passionate about tackling climate change in your area.
Together, we can reach our vision of 100% clean energy in a generation.
