The project is delivered by a partnership of Voluntary Action Leeds, Our Future Leeds, Together for Peace, Leeds Tidal, CAG Consultants and Leeds Community Foundation. The project aims to shape a ‘zero carbon, more nature friendly, more socially just Leeds by the 2030s’ through community-led climate action and networks of interest.
