About the Big Conversation

Our movement has much to be proud of. From chartering climate trains to London and stopping coal mining in Ledston to achieving Fairtade status for Leeds, we’ve made a tangible difference to this city and to the lives of the world’s poorest people.

But if we really want to tackle issues like climate change, global poverty and sustainability – issues of global justice – we need to take our campaigning to the next level. How do we connect all this great activism in Leeds together? How can we help activist groups be all they can be? How do massively grow our numbers so that we can demand not ask for change?

We’re holding a series of four themed discussions to start to address these very questions. You are warmly invited to come along, share your ideas and inspiration, and together shape the future of the global justice movement in Leeds.
