LS-TEN skatepark in Hunslet hosted national Green Party leader Carla Denyer last month – and took the opportunity to announce their ambitious plans to become as planet-friendly as possible in the coming years.
The acclaimed LS-TEN (formerly The Works) is one of the biggest indoor skateparks in the UK. They also deliver alternative education, and a community programme.
For 2022, they are embarking on a new challenge: to fully review their climate impact, take action, and become carbon-neutral within 5 years. Watch out for further details of their pledge on our social media.
Local Green Party representative and community campaigner Ed Carlisle commented:
“So many of us are becoming more climate aware, and the need for us all to play our part. It’s especially exciting to see diverse bodies like LS-TEN, who aren’t an obvious ‘climate’ organisation, step up and take a lead – and their impact via their community networks could be even more significant.”
Carla Denyer was visiting Leeds as part of a national listening campaign, as the newly-appointed national co-leader of the Green Party. She also participated in a community forum in Beeston Hill about women in politics and leadership.
