Ryland’s Breakfasts are our café series of debates addressing important sustainability issues in an interesting and thought provoking way. Each speaker will give a 5 minute provocation followed by an opportunity for the audience to engage. We look forward to seeing you.
Waterworld? An abysmal movie by Kevin ‘wolfdancer’ Costner or the agenda we should all be waking up to? What’s the big picture on water and in our concentration on carbon has the sustainability movement taken it’s eye off that most elemental subject, the water in our rivers, taps and bathtubs? From drought, to flooding, to global water wars, what’s the critical agenda on water and if the Manchester City Region had to draw up a five point policy for water, what should it include?
