Manchester: A Certain Future is a stakeholder Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) for the city of Manchester. It sets out the actions that will need to be taken by citizens and organisations in the city in order to meet two objectives by 2020: reducing CO2 emissions by 41%; changing the culture to one appropriate for a low carbon city.
The Stakeholder Steering Group exists to oversee the direction of the Climate Change Action Plan on behalf of the stakeholders from across the city. Three years since its launch, the plan has recently undergone a refresh to ensure that it reflects the changed world in which we now live.
Following the success of inaugural Chair Steve Connor (2009-2013), a new chairperson is sought to take the group into the next exciting stage of Manchester: A Certain Future.
The time commitment for this high profile voluntary position will be between 3-4 days per month. It will include preparation for and chairing of the bi-monthly Stakeholder Steering Group meetings, being an advocate for and presenting on behalf of Manchester: A Certain Future at high-profile events, and providing input into the annual stakeholder conference.
Applicants should have appreciation of and commitment to action on climate change and be able to be an ambassador and engage with a broad spectrum of individuals and organisations on this agenda.
This role is for 3 years
