Cities play an increasingly important role in responding to climate change. The United Nations’ annual climate conference should have concluded on 12th November 2020, hosted in the UK. Due to the pandemic, it has been postponed by a year, but climate change can’t be forgotten. We bring together a panel of specialists to discuss Manchester’s role in preventing climate change as a major European city, what other cities are doing, and respond to your questions.

The event’s discussions will be used to create a subsequent free study guide and video for Manchester’s own A-Level Politics students.

Speaker line-up:
Dr Paul Tobin (chair) –University of Manchester
Simeran Bachra – CDP
Phoebe Hanson – Manchester Climate Change Youth Board
Councillor Luthfur Rahman – Manchester City Council
Jonny Sadler – Manchester Climate Change Agency
Prof Nalin Thakkar – University of Manchester
