The summit was one of Andy Burnham’s mayoral election commitments, its aim to establish a pathway to a carbon neutral Greater Manchester by 2038. The current target is 2050. Details of the “official” Bolton listening event are still to emerge so we have decided to go ahead with a pre-conference meeting to discuss an approach to the Summit taking place in March. Ian McHugh will host, Richard Shirres of Bolton &District Civic Trust (in a personal capacity) will contribute a short introduction. Open to anyone with an interest in developing a viable response to reducing carbon dependency.
