The Leeds Climate Commission was established in 2017 to help Leeds to make a positive choice on issues relating to energy, carbon, weather and climate. It brings together key organisations and actors from across the city and from the public, private and third sectors.
Informed by the work of the UK Committee on Climate Change, the Leeds Climate Commission seeks to be an independent voice in the city, providing authoritative advice on steps towards a low carbon, climate resilient future so as to inform policies and shape the actions of local stakeholders and decision makers.
Andy Gouldson, Professor of Environmental Policy and Dean: Interdisciplinary Research at the University of Leeds, was selected to be the first Chair of the commission and will take the opportunity to talk about his role there and the benefits to a city of having their own Climate Commission.
Open to all and free to attend, a light lunch will be provided
