Climate Change Summit to be held in Leeds

4th August, 2021 - 17:00


As the UK looks forward to hosting the world’s largest climate change conference, COP26, later this year in Glasgow, Leeds will be hosting a climate summit of its own.

Leeds' sister Commission, the Yorkshire and Humber Climate Commission has announced that it is partnering with the Yorkshire Post for the one-day event on 9 November. The hybrid event will take place at aql’s Leeds headquarters from 09.30-17.00.

The Yorkshire Post Climate Change Summit 2021 will bring together politicians, business leaders, academics and media from a cross-section of sectors. Speakers and attendees will debate the challenges that Yorkshire faces and discuss the best way forward to achieve our shared goals.

The event will also see the launch of a regional climate action plan for Yorkshire and the Humber, which is being produced by Yorkshire and Humber Climate Commission under director Andy Gouldson. The plan will be put out to public consultation in September – details to be announced soon.

Conference delegates can book tickets via a dedicated website for the summit. Earlybird tickets are available until 3 September.
