In March 2018, Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham is holding a Green Summit for Greater Manchester to inform a new environmental vision for the city region and to draw up an Environment Charter.

Listening events are being held in the run-up to the Summit to bring networks and communities together to discuss, debate and share ideas about what they want from a green, zero carbon city.

Given this develop we thought now would be a good time to bring Energy Democracy Greater Manchester back in to action.

Our listening event seeks to gauge the views of our activists and the wider community on energy democracy issues asking questions including:

What kind of role should citizen, workers and communities play in the energy transition of Greater Manchester?

What role should the Mayor and Greater Manchester authorities play in facilitating citizen, worker and community engagement and control?

How do we ensure that the ownership of this transition is controlled by the many ensuring that class, gender and race inequalities are not replicated?

How can civil society, grassroots activists, community energy and workers effectively collaborate with municipal organisations?

What mechanisms and tools should we use to hold those in power to account?

This two hour workshop will feature presentations and small group discussions.

The results of the workshop will be documented and fed back in to the Environment Charter writing process.
