update from the council on the climate change summit above
Moss Side Neighbourhood team with plants and bulbs as giveaways from Hulme Garden Centre and hopefully a big map where people may want to put notes/thoughts on
In Our Nature including lovely things from the shop in the city centre (I think this will look great) with giveaways
Biffa Recycling Team
All the Housing Providers (HPs) including a van showcasing MSV sustainable homes work (this sounds fascinating). This helps showcase all the work HPs are doing and have planned around climate change
Sow the City
University of Manchester
Manchester Climate Change Agency
Sow the City are providing bug hotels, bird boxes that we can raffle too 🙂
From the notes from the last summit 18+ months ago, the ideas have been written up and put into themes which will be printed out and put on tables. These could inspire discussion and action from organisations and people attending.
Agenda/ running order:
14:30 – Stall arrivals and set up
15:30 – Participants arriving
16:00 – A quick health and safety from myself/rob (fire alarm etc) and introduce:
16:10 – Welcome from Moss Side Councillors outlining the purpose of the evening (especially showcasing all the great moss side work)
16:20 – Lisa Davenport, describing the Powerhouse, their plans, links to Rec Park. Some great things here
16:30 – Moss Side Eco Squad showcase/celebration
16:50 – questions from presentation/thoughts so far
17:00 – Open up to the room for conversation. What are the small things which people want to share, or what they would like to see more of? What’s the medium term (1-3 years) and longer term (3+ years) that they would like to see and by whom?
17:45 – Check out the stalls some more, have more conversations
18:00 – Close with next steps (we are populating the ward climate change plan which we can share – its also going on the MCC website)

Trialling nature-based solutions,
