Manchester Achieves 1st Sustainable Fish City Star!
Wednesday, 28 June 2017 11:48

Manchester has received our first Sustainable Fish Cities ‘star’ as part of the Sustainable Fish Cities award system!

The campaign to make Manchester a Sustainable Fish City is led by local group Sustainable Fish City Manchester, and is part of a nationwide project to transform the UK’s major cities’ impact on our depleting fish stocks, by greatly reducing the demand for fish from stocks that are overfished.

Manchester Metropolitan University, The Manchester College, and The University of Manchester have joined other organisations in Manchester in a commitment to remove endangered and unsustainably-caught fish from their menu’s, and support the wider campaign. Together, the three institutions have a combined student and staff population of over 100,000, and are a fantastic example of what can be achieved at scale.

Organisers are now calling for more institutions to get involved, including schools, hospitals and work places. If you would like to know more about the Sustainable Fish Cities campaign or award and would like to get involved, click here.

Sustainable Food Cities Bronze Award for Manchester!
Friday, 16 June 2017 15:25

The Sustainable Food Cities Network helps bring together people and places who are committed to making a healthy and sustainable food system a defining characteristic of where they live. Sustainable Food Cities support people and practitioners to share challenges, explore practical solutions and develop best practice on key food issues.

The network run an award scheme to recognise and celebrate places who are taking a joined up and holistic approach to food. We are pleased to update that Manchester has recently achieved the Sustainable Food Cities 'Bronze award' for this scheme. Food Futures have been incremental in pulling together the application for the award, but the recognition is very much for all of the people and projects who work to make our food in Manchester healthier and more sustainable.
