GM Green Summit – Stockport’s Listening Workshop

The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, is holding a Green Summit for Greater Manchester in March to inform a new environmental vision and to draw up an Environment Charter.

A Listening Workshop is being held in Stockport in the run-up to the Summit and we want you to be there!

The workshop is taking place on Friday 2nd March 2018, 11am – 1pm, in the Conference Suite at Fred Perry House, Edward Street, Stockport, SK1 3XE. Make sure to register for it on Eventbrite.

These workshops are taking place across Greater Manchester and will bring people together to share and discuss ideas about what they want from a green, carbon neutral city and what they think needs to happen to achieve this.

Your views from the workshop will help to develop the Environment Charter, and shape policy and action in Greater Manchester, which in turn will inform other key city strategies.

Cllr Alex Ganotis, Leader of Stockport Council and Greater Manchester’s lead for environmental issues and climate change, said: “We want to bring people from Stockport together to debate and pool together ideas on how we can achieve carbon neutrality in Greater Manchester as early as possible.

“We want to get our local people thinking about the way we use and generate energy for our homes and workplaces, how we can encourage more sustainable travel and improve our air quality, and how we can make better use of our green spaces, whilst growing our economy and innovating through low carbon technology.”
