Expression of Interest submission deadline: 17:00 14 May 2021
Budget: £5,000
To be completed by: 11 June 2021

Leeds 2023 will be a year-long programme of extraordinary cultural experiences. Leeds Culture Trust, the delivery body, has a unique opportunity to pave the way in best environmental and sustainability practices as a key aspect of our vision.

We are committed to delivering a year of culture that benefits our local communities and economies whilst also having a minimal impact on the environment.

We also have clear objectives within our strategic plan that relate to our work in sustainability:

• Increase public engagement with green spaces, parks and nature
• Increase knowledge and understanding of the climate emergency and work sustainably to support Leeds’s ambition to be carbon neutral by 2030

We want Leeds 2023 to be cited as best practice in sustainable culture delivery, as well as being a catalyst for greater awareness and community understanding in climate action. We are therefore commissioning a first phase feasibility study that will enable us to identify a clear roadmap for our ambition to be a Carbon Neutral Year of Culture.

Please find our brief, detailing this commission, here.

To express your interest in the delivery of this brief please contact Emma Beverley on emmabeverley@leeds2023.co.uk by 14 May 2021 with an outline of your experience/areas of specialism.
