WHAT IS THE ISLINGTON CLIMATE CENTRE?
The Islington Climate Centre is a lively hub for local community groups and residents who want to address the impact of the changing climate on one of North London's most vibrant boroughs.
Steered by a team of Islingtonites, the Centre is community-focused, locally inspired and inclusive, helping local residents address the seemingly intractable problems of climate and ecological breakdown, both within our community and beyond.
Climate-focused events and activities has included panels and workshops on zero waste and plastic-free living,swap shops and repair parties, Make and Mend festivals, kids activities, film screenings and much more.
The Centre is part of the Climate Emergency Centre network, projects across England and Wales that are using vacant properties as community hubs for the benefit of people and planet. There are just 11 open centres at the moment - in Guildford, Godalming, Staines, Seaford, Elmbridge, Dorking, Lewes, Swindon, Colchester, Northampton and Abingdon. Help make Islington the 12th!
WE ARE SETTING UP A GROUNDBREAKING CLIMATE CENTRE IN ISLINGTON, NORTH LONDON
The planet is in a climate and ecological emergency. Yet, despite this, promises made at COP26 in November 2021 have put humanity on course for between 2.4 and 2.7 degree rise in temperatures, well over the ‘safe’ 1.5 degree rise in temperature stipulated by the Paris Climate Agreement.
People want to take real action but sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start. From those who would like to know more to those who know a lot already, the Islington Climate Centre will focus on local efforts, while linking our work into the global landscape and building networks for real change.
