Climate Action Leeds is an ambitious five-year programme funded by The National Lottery Climate Action Fund.
It provides a platform for people, organisations and communities to come together to take action on climate change, and the collective purpose is to help shape a Leeds which is zero carbon, nature friendly and socially just by the 2030s.
As part of the project community hubs are being set up around Leeds, with the support of Climate Action Leeds partner Together For Peace.
Armley has been chosen as one of the areas for a community hub, and residents are beginning to come together to start having conversations about climate change and how it intersects with local issues such as keeping warm, eating well and managing waste.
Over the spring, Together for Peace will be supporting residents across Armley and New Wortley to form a local climate action group and start planning projects and design the Armley community hub together.
Joy Justice is currently working in Armley/New Wortley to bring people together around climate action, and will be at New Wortley Community Centre with the Climate Tea Trolley 1-2pm every Friday!
Make sure you pop down to the centre one Friday to have a chat with Joy about all things climate change. Alternatively you can contact Joy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
