We're gearing up to launch Manchester's largest community climate programme in May and to help us we'd like to hear from you on what YOU want to see in YOUR community!

Our  Zero Carbon Communities programme that is part funded by The National Lottery's Climate Action Fund and environmental charity Hubbub will be launching in early May, in partnership with Manchester City Council, Amity, Commonplace and The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change.

The programme will support the target set by Manchester to be a zero-carbon city by 2038 or before – 12 years earlier than the national 2050 target. To achieve this citywide, emissions will need to reduce by 13 per cent every year until 2038. 

Making our city zero carbon won't be easy. It will take significant steps from organisations and businesses, and small steps from individuals. At the same time, we know that Manchester needs new homes and jobs to keep thriving. We need to ensure that this happens in a way that is aligned with our carbon commitments and ready for our changing climate. 

We share the city, so we share our carbon footprint. We all have a crucial part to play and we hope this programme will help unlock the potential of resident and communities to take action on the climate emergency.

We are planning an exciting year of action on climate change in 6 communities across Manchester as part of this pilot programme.
