Do you want to do something to help tackle climate change? Leeds Climate Commission is a city-wide partnership enabling climate action and we are looking for people with a positive, can-do attitude to help us do that. 

The partnership, which brings together the public, private and third sector, working together on a voluntary basis, is a UK first.

We welcome applications from representatives from businesses, organisations, charities and community/voluntary groups and from public sector services who feel they can add value and identify synergies with ongoing work across the city. Members of the Commission are appointed on an individual basis (ie not as representatives of their company or organisation) but senior-level authorisation from within their place of work is preferred.

Membership is renewed annually (usually around October/November) with terms running for one year, after which members are asked to complete a short membership renewal survey if they wish to continue in their membership. Ad hoc applications may be accepted throughout the year in exceptional circumstances. If you are interested in joining the Leeds Climate Commission, please complete the application form and send your CV to Margo Hanson (

Please read the joining information and Terms of Reference (in downloads below) before completing the application form.
