Leeds Climate Forum: open consultation on a low carbon strategy for Leeds

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 -
18:00 to 19:30
LG 10 Michael Sadler Building, University Road, University of Leeds, LS2 9AD

 

Leeds Climate Forum is one of the ways in which Leeds Climate Commission will bring people and organisations together to shape Leeds’ transition to a low carbon, climate resilient city. The forum will take place twice a year, in Spring and Autumn and we hope that it will attract a broad mix of people from the public, private and third sector as well as interested members of the public.

Following the public launch of Leeds Climate Commission on 7th September, the first forum will be an open consultation on the Commission's report, 'A Low Carbon Strategy for Leeds' (see Our Energy and Carbon Plan). 

Commission Chair, Professor Andy Gouldson, will present the strategy, outlining a range of cost effective options. Forum attendees will be asked to feed back on three key issues:

- What can be done to close the gap between the emission reductions that the city is currently on track to achieve and what it must achieve to meet its targets;

- What are the most significant actions the city should take to ensure that it reaches its targets;

- What are the practical challenges of achieving these actions and how can they be overcome.
