Climate Action Leeds is an ambitious five-year programme funded by The National Lottery Climate Action Fund.

Climate Action Leeds provides a platform for people, organisations and communities to come together to take action on climate change, in Leeds and beyond.

 

Our collective purpose is to help shape a Leeds which is zero carbon, nature friendly and socially just by the 2030s.

Our approach is focused on mobilising communities, campaign groups and sectors to plan and act together. Over 40 groups in Leeds contributed to planning the project, and it is supported by many more.

We started out in 2020 as the Climate Emergency Community Action Programme (CECAP), and re-named as Climate Action Leeds in 2021.

The idea and structure of the Climate Action Leeds programme emerged from the activities and thinking of Our Future Leeds.

Our Future Leeds acts as an independent strategic partner offering guidance and support as well as lobbying and advocacy work for the programme.
