ALL EYES will be on Paris in December as world leaders attempt to formulate a global agreement on climate change.  We want to send them a message loud and clear from Yorkshire – and we need your help to do it!

Our festival, ‘For the Love of Yorkshire, launches on 10 November 2015 in Leeds and York and runs until 13 December. Linking with The Climate Coalition’s UK campaign, ‘For the Love of’, our aim is to start a county-wide conversation about climate change and how we can drive solutions here at home, as well as internationally. After all, we know how great Yorkshire folk are at getting things done – so let’s lead the way!

Exciting events are happening.  We’ve already got news of cycle rides, talks, special services, debates, film showings, rallies, plays and workshops. But there is scope for much more.  Which is where you come in …
