Festival to inspire a ‘greener’ borough
15 October, 2021
Cllr Rowena Champion
A FESTIVAL tackling the climate emergency has just released its programme.
“Islington Together: Let’s talk about a greener future”, organised by the council, will start on Monday and run for two weeks.
Featuring a range of free activities and events, the festival hopes to inspire residents to help tackle the climate crisis.
The council hopes the borough – which produces around 679,600 tonnes of CO2 a year – will achieve net zero carbon status by 2030.
Organised in the run-up to the COP26 conference, Islington Together will encourage residents to reflect on the funding, powers and legislation needed to combat climate change.
The festival line-up includes a series of talks, guided walks, online tours and food-growing events.
Town Hall environment chief Councillor Rowena Champion said: “The climate emergency is a very real, very pressing issue, and it’s clear that we must all take urgent action to protect our planet before it’s too late.”
