Kindling & the Carbon Co-op have organised a social evening for people involved in community energy projects in the Manchester area for Friday 19th February 2010.

"We thought it would be beneficial to organise a get together for all those of us involved in community renewable projects, be that: water turbine co-operatives; bio-mass and woodland management enterprises; waste-to-energy projects, solar energy collectives or those involved in community-focused action on insulation and energy efficiency".

Manchester in Particular Poster

This poster is an A to Z guide to Manchester’s unique political, cultural, ecological & economic landscape and was launched in late 2009. From icons to unsung heroes, the poster highlights what’s unique about our great city. Facts and figures, a few things we’ve lost in recent years, some of our troubles, and a bit of pertinent history. Mostly it’s about the individuals and projects battling to preserve the best of the past and make the best of now to ensure a sustainable and just future for all Mancunians.
