Join Makertopia to explore the current state of Leeds’ transport system (spoiler: it’s not the best), and how we get to something better.
The Leeds Citizen’s Jury on Climate Change came up with 12 recommendations for how Leeds can improve, and better buses were number one! https://www.leedsclimate.org.uk/leeds-citizens-jury-recommendations-published
Better buses are a big focus this year for numerous organisations; Our Future Leeds, Leeds Climate Commission, Leeds for Climate and ACORN Leeds, who will be delivering a big event in February dedicated to this issue.
This informal, collaborative workshop will let you play with our interactive Model Futures game, explore barriers and solutions to better public transport, and make your own tiles so that others can learn from your ideas, expertise and opinions. Don’t worry if you miss the start, as we can bring you up to speed.
Makertopia don’t know all the answers! We’re not here to tell you the “right thing” to do. What we do is provide a forum for people with varying degrees of knowledge to answer those questions together.
Makertopia regularly meets with decision-makers, academics and young people so this is a chance to make your voice heard.
