Become an Affiliate or Associate member 

If you are interested in taking positive action on tackling climate change then consider joining Yorkshire & Humber Climate Commission as an Affiliate or Associate member. These are voluntary roles connected to the Commission’s broader work and  range from advising on and leading  projects (Associates) to simply staying up to date with and participating in our activities (Affiliates).  

Each role is designed around the commitment levels and expertise of those wishing to get involved.


Our Associates are individuals who are currently working in climate action in Yorkshire and the Humber. They use their expertise and connections to play an active role in advising us, leading on certain projects and strengthening our networks in the region.  

Associates need to be able to give time to help the Commission and should have relevant skills or expertise in their field. They would need to have the appetite and availability to be an active member of the Commission’s core groups and flagship projects. 

You could be already leading a climate project or initiative that you think would benefit from being connected to the Commission, or have ideas and knowledge that you think would help our work move forward.

Our Affiliates are individuals or organisations engaged in regional climate action but perhaps don’t have the time availability or commitment of Associates. Affiliates are keen to support Yorkshire & Humber Climate Commission and are actively engaged in working towards the four pillars of the Commission's focus (climate adaptation and resilience, reducing carbon emissions, protecting and restoring nature, and a just transition), but not directly connected to the flagship projects or core groups of the Commission. 

 Community groups, organisations and initiatives can become affiliated with the Commission, and may choose to adopt the name ‘Friends of Yorkshire & Humber Climate Commission’. 

Affiliates will be invited to lend their voice to consultations, have a line of communication to YHCC and will receive our monthly mailing list. Affiliates will also have the opportunity to participate in events and activities that are relevant to their interests.
