Here you will find what we do, when we do it and how you can join us in making Leeds a city with a clean, green, future!

We are currently engaged in a number of campaigns both local and national. We are always on the look out for new members who can support us in any way they can, be it writing letters to their MP, helping us to hold regular stalls, making a financial commitment, or getting engaged with campaigning as an active group member. We are keen to establish links with Youth Organizations, Schools, Churches, Unions and other  local stake holders that want to be counted where it really matters - our environment.

  • SUCCESS AS LEEDS COMMITS TO CUT EMISSIONS BY 40% by 2020.
  • The Get Serious Coalition succeed in their aim to have  the council commit to binding targets on CO2 emissions.Press

  • Hook Moor Wind Farm.This Project has been appealed to central government show your support here. this development was turned down on an objection made by the MOD in relation to the  RAF training airfield at Church Fenton. It seems a pity that the Government cannot fund the necessary technologies to allow airports and turbines to coexist. It seems very unlikely that  Leeds will reach it's targets of generating 10MW of renewable energy by 2010.
  • Leeds Bradford Airport Expansion - Expansion Approved. This Decision by the Council shows their lack of understanding of the issues that will be facing the region over the coming years. It is far from cartain that the airport will be a finnancial success. The joint campaign fought by NLBAE has set the agenda for COPENHAGEN. Join the campaign.
