Upcoming event: Mangoes, Meat & Motors - confronting the climate on Manchester’s Curry Mile
How does life/work/play on the Curry Mile help/hurt the environment? An event for local people who care about the Curry Mile & the planet.
Mangoes, Meat & Motors: Confronting the Climate on Manchester's Curry Mile is an event to explore how life/work/play on the Curry mile helps and/or hurts the environment. Although the Curry Mile is an important place for local cultures and economies, it poses a number of environmental challenges that need creative, joined-up solutions and input from a wide range of people.
Part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, this event by the ‘Towards Inclusive Environmental Sustainability’ (TIES) research group aims to create space for local people, including residents, business owners, workers and visitors, to share creative ideas for how to support the positives and confront the negatives surrounding this iconic place. By talking and listening together, we will explore how to make the Curry Mile serve people and the environment better.
You can get involved before the event by entering our photo competition. To enter: take a photo that captures what you think helps or hurts the environment on the Curry Mile. Send your photos via WhatsApp to 07824369753. Please write a short description to explain your photo (approx. 50 word) with your contact details by midnight on 31 October.
These photos will be displayed at the event on 8 November and provide prompts for World Café discussion. Prizes will be awarded for the three best photos.
Using the World Café method, the event will provide an opportunity to reflect on important local-global challenges and feed valuable insights into the ongoing TIES Project, which is based in the University of Manchester's Sustainable Consumption Institute and funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
