The Global Day for Climate Justice is coming to Leeds this Saturday the 6th November, and Our Future Leeds is excited to be there to connect and grow the movement.
The event in Leeds will be one of a number of coordinated decentralised demonstrations taking place right across the UK and beyond. It is expected that some 500,000 people globally will take to the street in a united call for Climate Justice, demanding action from world leaders at the global climate talks (COP26) currently taking place in Glasgow until 12th November.
The Yorkshire and Humber COP26 Coalition will hold a demonstration in Leeds’ Millennium Square from 12-5pm. This will be an afternoon of togetherness, connection and inspiration; including speeches, stalls, music and a march around the city centre at 1pm. You can find out more about the event here.
How can we transform Leeds?
Our Future Leeds will be at our stall in Millennium Square, and we're looking forward to seeing our network come together, to meet and speak with inspiring people from across the region, and grow the movement for climate justice - so pop down and say hello!
We're keen to hear from you: What are you working on? What skills do you have? What would you like to learn? What are the things you feel Our Future Leeds should be doing to better tackle the climate challenges we face in Leeds?
We'll also be on hand to talk about our work and campaigns, and how you can get involved and be part of making our vision for a zero-carbon, socially-just and nature-friendly Leeds a reality.
Already involved in Our Future Leeds? Great! We'd love to see you, and any assistance or support you can contribute on the day is greatly appreciated - whether that's helping us set up, taking 20 minutes to talk with passers-by, or handing out a few flyers. Please drop us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help out.
Climate Action Leeds will also be there to build momentum after their amazing October launch week, and will be offering a space for discussion as they ask what your future Leeds would look like.
Thank you - and we look forward to seeing you there!
