Membership and Meetings

Individual membership of York Environment Forum is £5; groups/organisations £10.

Membership of York Environment Forum is open to representatives from any appropriate groups, organisations or businesses with an interest in environmental matters, as well as individuals and parish councillors (subject to the terms of our Constitution).

Meetings are bimonthly at City of York Council’s West Offices (4.00-6.00pm) and observers are always welcome. We have a number of working groups on energy, transport, sustainability, the natural environment and the built environment that operate informally between meetings.

Minutes and agendas are posted on our website and dates of meetings are on the calendar on the Diary page.

To attend a meeting as an observer, or apply for membership of York Environment Forum, please contact the Chair.

Membership forms are available here: YEF MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION FORM v4
