“Over the next decade, if we accelerate our response to the climate crisis, we can create thousands of good jobs, improve homes, overhaul our transport system and make this an even better place to live.” - Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester.
Now in its fourth year, we are delighted to announce that the Greater Manchester Green Summit 2021 will be an in-person event at The Lowry, Salford Quays, hosted by the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham.
Greater Manchester has adopted a clear and ambitious approach to climate action with individual, community, educational and industry action at its heart. One where we all take action – making better choices, investing in and embracing more sustainable businesses, lives and lifestyles.
This year's programme of events focuses on the actions we can all take to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our environment. The event will showcase many of the great actions that have been taken so far, what we can all achieve as a collective, given the right support, direction and funding to succeed and discuss the challenges and pace of change still required to reach our goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2038.
You'll hear from inspiring individuals, community groups and businesses from across Greater Manchester as they share their experiences and the actions they have been taking throughout our city-region.
The Summit is a great opportunity to meet and network with colleagues who share the same ideals and worries on the climate and to celebrate those people, community groups and organisations who are taking action and inspiring others to do the same.
