CALL OUT FOR PARTICIPANTS: DOING ZERO

CAN YOU HELP YOUR LOCAL COMMUNITY TO HELP THE PLANET?

This September, Doing Zero brings together people from Moston and Harpurhey in Manchester and Kawangware in Nairobi, Kenya to see how local neighbourhoods can push back against the climate crisis.

We are looking for people from Moston and Harpurhey to help us create a local campaign about what we can do right here, right now. It’s about learning. It’s about sharing knowledge. It’s about designing new ways to change how our communities think and act, looking at how the climate emergency is affected by what we grow and what we eat.

If you want to make a difference and meet others in Manchester and Nairobi who share your passion, we want to hear from you.

The activity will take place over 4 full days on Saturday 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th September from 9.45am to 5.00pm.

You will also receive a contribution of £100 each towards your time.

Doing Zero is a project created by Design Manchester and Nairobi Design Week, working with Manchester Climate Change Agency and the Kenya Climate Change Working Group to develop information that is relevant locally and they plan to create collaboration hubs in both communities, linked by large, continual screens that function as doorways into the other city.

Doing Zero project partners in Manchester include SICK! Festival, community design specialists Standard Practice; Manchester Climate Change Agency, and Manchester City Council.  Doing Zero is funded by the British Council and promoted in partnership with WWF UK.
