Leeds has declared a Climate Emergency. What does this mean for our city? And how do we use this opportunity to create a sustainable, liveable, socially just city?
In March, Leeds joined councils and countries across the world in declaring a Climate Emergency. This means working towards being zero carbon by 2030. To reach this goal Leeds will have to change, almost beyond recognition.
No one knows what a zero carbon city will look like, but we think it can be a healthier, happier, more enjoyable place to live where we are more connected to those around us.
Our Future Leeds is a new and growing group of people who want to use this opportunity to create a sustainable, liveable and socially just city, one which is healthy, thriving and inspiring for all.
We need the help, involvement, ideas and creativity of the people and groups already active in our communities to help us rethink our city and how we live in it.
If you want to be part of building a sustainable, liveable and socially just city, then please come along to our first event on 6 June from 6-9pm, Old Bridge Street Church, Bridge Street, Leeds.
You will need to register for the event here https://ourfutureleeds-buildingasustainablecity.eventbrite.co.uk/
