People Place Planet

working together to build a zero carbon Didsbury

People Place Planet Didsbury is a community group to fight climate change together. To inform and educate about the scale of the current emergency and to support each other ton reduce our carbon footprint and build a better future.

Manchester declared a climate emergency in 2019 and set a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2038. To achieve this we need to cut our emissions across the city by 50% before 2025.

We have fallen behind and as each year passes, the target becomes less achievable.

Didsbury is the highest emitting area in Manchester and our local efforts will be critical to whether our city hits these targets. We can still make this happen.

Inaction is not an option.

We will be working with the community, schools and businesses to help each other rise to the challenge.
