To attend, you need to register in advance, using this link.…See More

Sustainable Hackney has joined the COP 26 coalition

Despite the twenty-five COP (Council of Parties) meetings organized since 1995 by the UNFCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) which is tasked with strengthening the global response to climate change; there is little or no sign they’ve had any impact at all on the soaring levels of green-house gasses.  2020, despite a significant ramping up of renewables, is likely to be another year in which all the wrong sorts of records have been broken.  It’ll possibly be the hottest on…See More

No road building project has ever reduced traffic and this…See More

March 15, 2020 from 2pm to 5pm
The refugee crisis in Greece and Turkey is escalating and Johnson's Tory government is increasing state racism: the horror of deportations and the continued "hostile environment", the exposure of some Tories MPs having links to the far right, an advisor advocating eugenics to the rise in racism as a result of the Coronavirus, are sharp examples of the urgent need to organise a mass movement to stand up to racism. This is why we hope you will come to this public meeting on Sunday 15 March…See More
