The first gathering of the Hackney Environment Network is taking place this Saturday 14th March at the Arcola Theatre in Dalston.
The event will bring Network members together and provide an opportunity to discuss local issues and campaigns, draw out common themes and discuss successful ways of getting things done and moving forward. The Network is part of Hackney Environment Forum and you can find out more about their work here.
Cllr Sophie Linden, the Cabinet member for sustainability, and Mary Cannon, Chair of Hackney's Community Empowerment Network will outline the Council's current work on sustainability and consultation processes. There will also be workshops on climate change; keeping Hackney green; biodiversity and community politics and representation.
The last we heard was that places are now full, but in case there are any last minute cancellations, and you are interested in attending it might be work emailing the network at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We have our monthly walkabout surgery on Saturday, but hope to pop into the meeting afterwards.
