"Volunteering with MCCA was a fantastic opportunity that has bolstered my knowledge of sustainability initiatives both on a local and national scale. It enabled me to expand my view of sustainability to incorporate social, economic as well as environmental issues that impact Manchester and its surrounding boroughs through attending forums, annual meetings and events across the city that would otherwise have been unknown to me. Composing articles for the website, aiding in the dissemination of the city's sustainability targets, provided a platform for me to showcase my verbal and written style, ultimately increasing my confidence in public speaking and publication skills.
I would recommend anyone to volunteer with MCCA as they care as much about your professional development as they do your service in supporting a more sustainable Manchester."
