Greenprint for Hackney

Sustainable Hackney has developed a set of Greenprints for Hackney which set out our vision of a sustainable future for our borough.  The Greenprint was launched in 2014, expanded  in 2016 and revised in 2023. 

The issues in the Greenprints are the way we structure our work and our working groups report on progress to our steering group at our regular meetings.  Come along to find our more and get involved.





Our vision is that Hackney is a place where parks and green and blue spaces are sustainably managed and enhanced to achieve their optimum potential for harbouring wildlife and supporting human health and wellbeing.
