About the Event
How do we make our vision of transforming Leeds into a zero carbon, nature friendly, socially just city a reality?
This is the crucial challenge Climate Action Leeds is addressing as we work to provide a platform for the people, organisations and communities of Leeds to come together to share, connect and inspire climate action.
We warmly invite you to join us at our city-wide event ‘From Vision to Action’. Taking place at the Leeds City Museum (Brodrick Hall) on Thursday 20th October with arrivals from 9:30. The event will be a celebration of the achievements already made by the amazing people of Leeds - a vital step in catalysing our transition from vision to action across the city.
What will it involve?
Throughout the day there will be poems, music, speakers and interactive sessions focused on key areas, including health, work and economy, transport, and others.
There’ll be plenty of opportunity for exchanging ideas and forming new networks to energise transformative change across the city as we look to reflect the need for groups with common goals to bring about tangible, community-led change together.
Spread the word! Tell your friends, colleagues, community, team mates and anyone else in Leeds (or beyond) - and together let’s achieve our vision of a zero carbon, nature friendly, socially just Leeds a reality.
There’ll be a tasty veggie and vegan lunch provided by Scoffs too!

The event is open to everyone and we'd love it if you could join us on the day; but in-person places are limited, so please only book an in-person ticket if you are sure you can attend.
