Demand change from the next Manchester metro mayor
In May 2021, Greater Manchester is going to the polls. It's time for Manchester to choose its next mayor, and we want to make sure clean air is at the top of their agenda.
We want all the mayoral candidates to back:
- An ambitious clean air zone for Greater Manchester, that restricts all polluting vehicles in the most polluted areas.
- A region-wide clean air plan that seeks to reduce all pollution, specifically around schools, hospitals and care homes, that is integrated with health plans, COVID-19 recovery and seeks to reduce health inequalities.
- Further and faster investment in cycling, walking and cleaner public transport to enable people to choose healthier forms of travel.
Keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks when we’ll be launching an action for you to email your candidates. Make sure you’re signed up as a campaigner so we can let you know.
