Who are Climate Action Leicester and Leicestershire? We’re a group of people living in Leicester and Leicestershire who are terrified and inspired by the climate crisis and climate justice and are working together to address these issues.

Climate Action’s launch (4th April) has been cancelled.

We are in an important stage re campaigning on Leicester’s draft Local Plan (the public consultation for this draft has just been postponed but will happen soon) so now is our chance to get really good at using electronic/online ways of working effectively together – and maybe even reduce our travel footprints too. We hope to post some ideas on this in the near future.

For, now please would you ask 3 (ideally Leicester based) people who you think have not yet signed our online petition on the Local Plan, to sign and ask their friends. We will be handing this petition in as part of the consultation, and would like to have a couple of thousand signatures, and the draft plan as it stands does little or nothing to prioritise climate change. You can find the petition here.
