The Leeds Diocese J&P Commission is delighted to be able to host one of the regular meetings of the Northern Dioceses' Environment Group.
"Progress on the Journey to 2030" will offer an inter-active opportunity to explore our committments to Climate Action. A session will be led by John Paul de Quay, co-founder of the Ecological Conversion Network.
This meeting - which is open to everyone - brings together people from all the Northern Dioceses. There will be the opportunity to hear what each of us has been doing about our Climate Emergency and to hear what is also happening at a national level.
Helen Hayden, Executive member for the Climate Emergency with Leeds CIty Council (and member of the Leeds Diocese J&P Commission) will provide some insight into how Leeds City Council is moving towards net zero.
A light lunch will be provided for all those who register to attend.
