A new community climate action group is forming in Armley.
The first meeting of Climate Action Armley is today (Monday, 9 May), 5.30-7pm at New Wortley Community Centre.
Over the next few months, the new climate action group will develop projects, campaigns and ideas that address local issues and aspirations and tackle climate change.
The group will then receive support over the next three years through Climate Action Leeds to grow as a group and make things happen.
Some of the ideas suggested so far are community gardens, a repair cafe, protecting existing biodiversity and greenspace, and tackling waste disposal, recycling and litter.
The Climate Action Armley group is going to be resident-led and open to people from across the Armley ward, people who work in Armley and anyone who sees Armley as a place they are connected to.
The Armley group is one of a number of local hubs being set up by Climate Action Leeds to provide a platform for people, organisations and communities to come together to take action on climate change.
