ZERO CARBON HEADINGLEY

Headingley -Towards a 15 Minute Neighbourhood.

This is the title of a conference/webinar being run jointly by HDT, Headingley Festival of Ideas and Zero Carbon Headingley. The concept of a 15 minute neighbourhood is a community where everyone can safely walk or cycle to all their day-to day needs (shops, library, school, doctor, green space, etc) within fifteen minutes or so.

There will be guest speakers, workshops and open discussion around this theme. The conference is being held on Sunday November 22nd and will either be held at HEART with an option to join on-line, or only as an on-line webinar, depending on COVID restrictions. Watch out for more details nearer the time.
