60 young people from across Europe are in Leeds to help keep this year’s Leeds Festival environmentally friendly. They are coming for a two week volunteering project organised by the local community organisation Everything is Possible, to help keep the Leeds Festival site environmentally friendly.

They will also help salvage abandoned camping equipment left in a good or reusable condition. This equipment will then be passed on to the local community and individuals in Leeds through a ‘’community exchange’’ sale.
