With Clean Air Day 2018 coming up on 21 June, people in Leeds are being urged to take up a "Go Green" challenge by wearing green and getting around the city by bus, train, bike or by walking to show their support to reduce pollution in Leeds. Go Green stations will be showing up at Merrion House, Civic Hall, St Georges House, Enterprise House and TechNorth where you can pledge your support, take a photo with your pledge and help spread the word on social media.
Leeds could be the green finance centre of the North - but it needs to think big, capitalise on expertise and have an integrated approach to low carbon projects.
That was the message from a networking event to kick start low carbon projects in Leeds, which heard inspirational stories from trailblazing businesses and positive news about Leeds already being a "hotspot" for ethical investment.
