About Sustainable Hackney

Sustainable Hackney combines the forces of Hackney Environment Forum, Hackney Environment Network and the Ecoactive Conference group.  Our mission is to support local environmental organisations, co-ordinate activities and bring far greater urgency to addressing climate change and protecting our local environment.

Our work:

Sustainable Hackney has developed the Greenprint for Hackney which sets out our vision of a sustainable future for our borough.  

Our workstreams support the Greenprint and are lead by members of our steering group. We have helped set up Hackney Green Drinks, Hackney Fixers and Hackney Food Partnership and we support a number of other projects through the active involvement of our steering group including EcoActive, Hackney EnergyDivest Hackney

Many of our members represent other organisations and our website, Twitter feed and Facebook page help to network local groups and keep people informed of our work.

We provide webpages for Tree Musketeers, Hackney Marsh User Group and Hackney Tree Nursery. We are members of the Hackney Community Empowerment Network.
