London Regional Gathering

  • The Printworks 139 Clapham Road London, England, SW9 0HP United Kingdom

Friends of the Earth's London Regional Gathering is a chance for anyone interested in environmental issues to get together, meet like-minded people and learn about campaigning tools. At this gathering, there's particular focus on the campaign for cleaner air.

The event is free and everyone is welcome, but the morning will be most useful if you're part of a Friends of the Earth local group. The afternoon is open to all: essential campaign and skills training to make a big impact in fighting for clean air.

It’ll be a fun and informal day. You can expect:

  • Great workshops
  • Free training
  • The chance to take part in an action for clean air
  • A bring-and-share lunch, and time to meet and chat to others

Places are limited so please make sure you book yours in time. You can book here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/london-regional-gathering-clean-air-tickets-31100277768.
