February Monthly Meeting

  • Whitchapel Ideas Store 321 Whitechapel Road London, England, E1 United Kingdom (map)


Come and join us for our first meeting of the year to find out about our campaigns and how you can get involved! We will meet at the Whitechapel Idea Store Café on the 4th floor at 6.30pm. 

Here's a brief update about our campaigns.

Divestment
We are working as part of the Tower Hamlets Divest campaign to persuade Tower Hamlets Pension Fund to divest from fossil fuel companies. In July, we presented a petition calling for divestment with over 1,000 signatures to Tower Hamlets Council, and we continue to meet with councilors to press them to take action. Unfortunately, to date the Pensions Committee has moved very slowly, so we still need to keep the pressure on them to implement their election pledge to divest.

Clean Air
We are putting together a team of volunteers who are concerned about the quality of the air we breathe to help us take our Reclaiming Streets campaign forward. If this is you, send us a message! You don’t need to be an air quality expert, just passionate about cleaner air.

Bee Cause
Bees and butterflies in the UK are under threat. In Tower Hamlets and Hackney we are working with local parks and the council to identify and create habitat for our pollinators in East London this Spring, and we’ll need your help soon for planting! Let us know if you’d like to be involved. We are also creating plans to make biodiversity as a priority for new developments in our area.
