Virtual Citizen Discussion on Climate Change in the North launched

12th October, 2021 - 10:31


On 30 September, Leeds, Bradford and Hull local authorities launched a Virtual Citizen Discussion on Climate Change Policies in the North.

Residents are invited to share their ideas on how the city councils can best respond to climate change. The platform will be running throughout October and November 2021 for residents to continue contributing to discussions. 

What do you have to do?

Register on the Yorkshire Climate platform.

  1. You'll be categorised into a city unit based on the location you provided during registration (Leeds, Bradford, or Hull).

  2. Support and improve existing issues and initiatives proposed by others.

  3. If you don’t see an issue you like, create a new issue.

  4. If you disagree with an existing initiative, create a competing initiative.

  5. If you would like to get more expertise on an issue, you can ask for expert advice within your proposal or improvement suggestion.

  6. Vote on your favourite initiatives.

  7. You can also delegate your deliberation and voting rights to other participants you trust on topics you are least interested in.

Be sure to share with your networks, organisations and community to ensure as many people as possible can share their ideas and opinions.

This Thursday (14 October), Climate Action Leeds are holding an hour long event on the Virtual Citizen Discussion and how to get involved. Book your place now.
