As part of our goal to make London carbon-neutral by 2030, we’re launching listening campaigns in three boroughs, including Waltham Forest, with the aim of inspiring listening events around London.
On Sunday 1st March after the 10.30am service, we held our first listening event in the side chapel of church – something we call a ‘house meeting.’ Ten of us shared our views about the climate crisis, had the opportunity to look at practical ways we can take action as a church and as individuals, and learned more about the kinds of actions that need to happen at a borough-wide and city-wide level.
We’ll be holding a second house meeting on Saturday 7th March, 2.30-3.30pm, at the Rectory (117 Church Hill, E17 3BD). If you would like to attend, RSVP by Noon on Friday by emailing Revd Vanessa Conant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re unable to attend this meeting, don’t worry! There will be other meetings between now and 21st April, when we gather at the Copperbox, Olympic Park, for the Citizens UK Mayoral Assembly, which is when we’ll put our ask around the climate to the top three candidates for Mayor of London.
Also, if you can’t attend a house meeting, but would like to help our campaign, please take this online survey, which will help us put pressure on politicians and will also give us a sense as to what Londoners would like to see as relates to becoming a carbon-neutral city. Take the survey here.
