Imagine Leeds: the climate action hub

Imagine Leeds is a space for collaborating to create a zero carbon, nature friendly, socially just Leeds. We help people to build effective relationships across communities, businesses, organisations and sectors.

Overview

Overview

Located in the city centre on the 7th floor of City Exchange, Imagine Leeds provides amazing panoramic views across the city and a real opportunity to envisage what a zero carbon, nature friendly, socially just city would look like.

Our vision is to create a permanent venue where different sectors can work together in an inclusive, participatory, practical and strategic way. It is a space informed by the latest data, warm relationships, science, culture and voices from across the city. We aim to unlock the passion, skills and vision of the businesses, institutions and people of Leeds and direct this energy towards making a better future for all.

 

Imagine Leeds has been set up through the Climate Action Leeds project with the help of many volunteers and environmentally-conscious organisations from across sectors.

What are the aims of Imagine Leeds?

We want to create a city which values and cares for people and planet by inspiring, activating and empowering Leeds' citizens, groups and communities to think big, act local and start now.

Let's create a movement that expands across the city and all its people by hosting a joyous, safe and accessible space which engages those not usually part of the environmental and social movements. 

Strengthen community and city-wide action

We aim to strengthen community and city-wide action by supporting other initiatives with spaces for connection, gathering resources and creating action towards a zero carbon, nature friendly, socially just Leeds.
