Roundhay Environmental Action Project was set up to address the rising worries of local residents hoping to tackle climate change on their doorstep. Over the past 17 years a range of exciting projects have been rolled out for communities to get engaged in the climate agenda and take action. Projects have included transport projects, from green technology and gardens open days to community gardens, tree planting and community orchards, EV charging point and bike rack installation, rewilding spaces and energy education.
