Our city’s shared plan to tackle climate change

Our Previous Plans


Manchester has been on its climate change journey since 2009. The following page outlines some of the key documents over this period. 


Call to Action - 2009

In 2009 Manchester City Council published a climate change 'call to action', inviting the city to help develop the city's first ever climate change strategy. 


Manchester: A Certain Future - 2009

For 6 months in 2009, over 200 residents and 100 organisations came together to produce the city's climate change strategy for 2010-20, titled 'Manchester: A Certain Future'. 


Manchester: A Certain Future Refresh - 2013

The Manchester: A Certain Future strategy was refreshed in 2013 to take into account progress to date, the development of a new Greater Manchester Climate Change Strategy, and to provide even greater impetus for action.



Progress against the delivery of these plans is available here.
