PEOPLE in Leeds are being urged to help shape the city’s climate action plan.

The Big Leeds Climate Conversation ends on October 31 and residents are being invited to give their views in an online questionnaire

The ‘conversation’ was launched in July in partnership with the Leeds Climate Commission. A report will be presented to the council’s executive board in December.

Cllr Lisa Mulherin, Executive Member for Climate Change, Transport and Sustainable Development said:”To realise our ambition to be a carbon neutral city by 2030, we need the permission and support of the people of Leeds to develop a plan of action.

She added: “I urge every resident to get involved and participate in the online survey conversation questionnaire. Every response will be read and will help shape Leeds’ plan to become a carbon-neutral city.”

Andy Gouldson, Chairman of Leeds Climate Commission, said: “We need to understand what people in Leeds know and think about the climate emergency and how we should respond collectively.We will need to make significant changes over the next decade to achieve the ambition of becoming a carbon neutral city, so it’s vital that people get involved now in the conversation about it.”
