People in Leeds are being asked to take part in a photoshoot on 5 December to show a positive vision of the future in the city.
As part of the Royal Academy of Engineering project ‘The Art of a Sustainable Future’ led by James Mckay at the University of Leeds, photographer Jonathan Turner will create a digital composite photograph showing Leeds in the (not too distant!) future as a positive, optimistic, zero-carbon sustainable society.
Members of the Leeds Climate Change Citizens’ Jury have announced their recommendations to the city of Leeds this evening (Monday 25 November) following almost two months of evidence gathering and deliberations.

A joint discussion and learning event on the triple emergency from Our Future Leeds in collaboration with Green House Think Tank.
Our Future Leeds, in collaboration with Green House Think Tank, invites you to this discussion and learning event. The evening is aimed at deepening our understanding of, and strengthening our response to, the triple crisis that we are facing: the climate emergency, the ecological emergency and the deep injustices that we are seeing in the UK and globally.
#PlanetData will be an event where people come together, discover common goals and similar projects, and join forces to make things happen and make a massive difference. We've seen first-hand the benefits of working in the open and its power - we are #RadicallyOpen by our very nature - and we can help others to work in the open, share data and projects, and let people reach in and help and make a real difference.
The just transition has become a recognised priority in the UK. It is part of the Paris Agreement and, this year, the UK government's Committee on Climate Change stated that the transition to a resilient and net-zero economy must be "fair and seen to be fair."
Making the shift to a sustainable economy in the UK will require the full mobilisation of the country’s £20 trillion financial system. This event launches a report in Yorkshire that addresses this crucial role, rooting its analysis in the region.
