Climate and Local Plan Walk and Talk

This walk gives you directions to enable you to follow a route from Leicester Train Station to Victoria Park, whilst listening to an audio talk which explores different aspects of the Climate Crisis and how we can change things in Leicester- especially in relation to the City Council’s Local Plan. This talk takes 30 minutes so you can walk slowly and enjoy the route, and you can do it any time.

For directions for the walk, please click here.  For the audio track, please click here. We’d be delighted if you would tweet your experience of doing the walk using #leicesterclimatewalk.

We hope this walk will inspire you to respond to the Council’s Local Plan consultation! More information about this on the low carbon planning and housing page. 

Please do Climate Action’s quick 7 minute survey on Leicester’s draft Local Plan.

It’s designed to give you some basic information about what is and isn’t in the draft Local Plan, and we hope to submit the responses to the City Council as part of our response to the Local Plan consultation. You can find the survey here. There is more information about the local Plan and our campaign on it here.

We’re a small but dedicated group aiming to design and run regular events about the climate crisis and climate justice, such as the Climate Change and Local Plan walk above. We want our events to help people connect with the realities and our feelings about climate change and its impacts across the world and into the future. We want them to help people to take action to reduce and mitigate climate change – whether it’s by writing to the council, reducing our personal footprint, planting a tree or talking about the climate with other people.  We want to make it clear that although we are all going to feel the effects of the climate crisis, the suffering it brings will not be equally shared – impacting earliest and most devastatingly on the Global South’s poorest communities – and it is not a problem we share equal responsibility for causing – being primarily caused by Western countries, large corporations and people with high incomes.   Above all, we want our events to inspire people to act, and to get others to act – now.
