About Us

When and Where

Our main monthly meeting is at 6.45pm for 7pm on the second Tuesday of each month. We meet at the Green Fish Resource Centre on Oldham Street (next to Mint Lounge, on the right just after Hilton Street if you're walking from Piccadilly Gardens).  

We also hold monthly campaigns meetings for each of our main campaigns at which we plan actions in more detail. These are usually held on:

  • the second Thursday of the month for climate
  • third Wednesday of the month for transport
  • third Thursday of the month for food

but please check our website for the latest updates and more information on the group:


You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

About this Group

The group consists entirely of volunteers, and our campaigns are funded entirely by membership, individual donations and charitable grants. We currently have around 140 paid-up members, and 20 to 25 active volunteers, though we're always on the lookout for more! Membership isn't compulsory, but if you do decide to join for the paltry sum of £2 per month (or even less if you're unwaged or low-waged), you not only get a copy of our quarterly newsletter, Act!on, but also a membership card which entitles you to special discounts at a range of local ethical businesses. Geographically, we mostly cover the Manchester, Trafford and Salford areas, with our closest neighbouring local group in Bolton.

We campaign on a range of local, national and international issues, including climate change, energy, food, transport and biodiversity. You can see more on our website.
