The Climate Innovation District is historic. 

The first houses to be built in Leeds city centre in 90 years, and the biggest urban sustainable development in the UK. 

It isn't like any other development anywhere else in the country. So to launch the district we didn't do what you'd do when launching any traditional new mixed-use development. This is a development with a purpose, so we got together world leaders in the science of climate change and sustainability and put on a launch event in the Everyman Cinema Leeds. 

For those who couldn't make the event, but were interested in finding out more about the Climate Innovation District and the Citu Home, we've created this video so you can find out about some of the big announcements of the night in under two minutes.  

Have a watch to find out what potential residents are saying about the event, and hear from Professor Andy Gouldson on how important this kind of innovation is crucial to prevent damaging climate change.
