Manchester Time to Act on Climate Change

This Manchester conference will examine climate politics in the run up to Paris. We'll discuss how climate change will impact upon people through inequality, refugees and racism. We will look at what can be done, and the alternatives to austerity and climate chaos such as One Million Climate Jobs. Groups involved include trade unionists, Oxfam, Friends of the Earth and other local groups. We want a bigger, stronger and more united environmental movement.

Come and join this discussion, which takes place after the Peoples' Assembly's week of Action against the Tory Party conference in Manchester.
