There's lots we can change about our own lives to reduce our personal carbon footprint. Along side this we need massive social and infrastructural change if we are going to have a sustainable future. This means that we need to change the values that our current society are based on. The problem at the moment is that our politicians and business leaders are still sticking with business as usual economic growth over protecting the environment. This is understandable because businesses are always going to put profit above sustainable practice and politicians can't risk making choices that will be unpopular with the electorate.
History has taught us that societies change through a combination of timing and social uprising, direct action can bring the issues that we need to tackle to the top of the political agenda. Go to our Action Manchester Directory to see what people in Manchester are doing.
