Register now for the Ways Forward 2022 conference: Thursday 20th and Friday 21st of October – in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The two-day event explores the key role of cooperation in effective community-led responses to the climate crisis that not only enable us to take action to cut our emissions, but also build the new organisations and businesses that we need for a regenerative future, and do it in a just and fair way.

As the cost of living crisis bites, the deep inequalities in our society are increasingly plain to see. The need for a different approach – that builds inclusive economies and climate justice – has never been clearer or more urgent. This conference will show that effective solutions already exist, built on sound values and principles, and that through wider cooperation – across communities and social movements, between public, private and third sectors – we can scale these out widely and at speed.
