We must cut emissions if we want to stop climate change. Join us as GALBA’s Vision for a Sustainable Local Economy presents their report  “Green New Deal for Leeds City Region”.

About the event

GEF, with the support of GreenHouse ThinkTank is implementing a presentation of the report on Green New Deal for the Leeds City Region, in order to explore the effect of airport expansions on city economies across Europe. The event will serve to gather experts on sustainable economy and transport in the local experts. Furthermore, the event will be a platform to exchange positive examples from cities across Europe.


Following the COP26 Climate Conference in Glasgow, the Group for Action on Leeds Bradford Airport (GALBA) is launching their new report: ‘A Green New Deal for Leeds City Region: GALBA’s Vision for a Sustainable Local Economy’.

The Group for Action on Leeds Bradford Airport (GALBA) is a group of concerned citizens in West Yorkshire. We come from a range of backgrounds and from across the political spectrum to stop the proposed expansion of Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA).
