Tackling global climate change at community level
Tuesday 13th October 5.30-7.30pm St. Wilfred’s Enterprise Centre, Royce Road, Hulme, Manchester
Following a week of important demonstrations in over 100 cities worldwide for Global Climate Action Week, Action for Sustainable Living* (AfSL) has so far recruited 24 local volunteers from across the city to become climate change pioneers in their community, but we are still on the lookout for more! If you want to make a difference in your area but aren’t sure where to begin then come along to an informal induction evening at AfSL’s offices in Hulme on 13th October and find out what voluntary position would best suit you.
AfSL are looking for eco warriors from across the city who can spare some time to help get our exciting sustainable community projects off the ground and generally complement the volunteers who are already working throughout Manchester and Trafford. We are particularly keen to hear from you if you live in Bradford, Gorton North, Ancoats, Clayton, Stretford or Sale.
We want local people who are passionate about making their communities better places in which to live to help us set up and run these unique projects which have so far included community allotments, fair trade societies, energy action teams, composting schemes, local shop campaigns and a whole range of interesting, locally-relevant things.
You don’t need any previous experience and there’s a lot you can get out of it. Volunteering with AfSL is a great way to meet new people, gain invaluable work experience with a local award winning charity, have fun, and most importantly, you’ll be able to see that you’ve made a real difference in your local area.
Action for Sustainable Living supports individuals and their communities to make a difference. We believe that small steps lead to big changes.
“I’m really excited about starting this unique opportunity to make a genuine hands-on difference in my community and help Action for Sustainable Living to inspire even more people to enjoy a sustainable way of life” said Ali Thomas, new AfSL volunteer in Chorlton.
