There is global consensus that climate change is real and is happening much more rapidly because of our actions. The oil that we have based our lives on is becoming more difficult and more polluting to extract, our soils are degraded, our wildlife is being destroyed, people are still living in poverty and our financial systems are collapsing. In short, an unsustainable world! MERCi believes that we can and should be doing things differently.

HOW WE DO ITHOW WE DO IT

MERCi runs many different projects that are helping to deliver a sustainable future. We began by buying a semi-derelict silk mill in Ancoats and restoring it into Bridge 5 Mill, a Centre for Sustainable Living. The Mill now hosts other organisations all working for sustainability and social justice and is also Manchester's most sustainable conference venue.
