We are a connected group of individuals and charities sharing the same aims. Our first meeting was on 20 January 2020 when 10 speakers each spoke for (more or less) 10 minutes, presenting their projects to a public audience in Islington Town hall. As the corona virus stopped all plans for having our community workshop at end of April, we created this website to showcase all the inspiring projects and people in the borough who give their time to improving our environment. Without them, there would be no #inspiringsustainableislington. So a big thanks to David, Chris, Lucy, Helena, Dorit, Lynne, Jen, Ursula, Rosalind, Amy, Mandy, Simon, Susanne, Mike, Alex, Meg, Julia, Andrew and so many more.
If there are issues with this website then please let Eilidh know firstname.lastname@example.org – it’s her lock-down project ! She is the coodinator of Cycle Islington, the local borough group of the London Cycling Campaign where she is a trustee. She worked with several charities to petition the Met Police to give their PCOs (Police Community Support Officers) more powers to fine speeding and idling drivers. As part of Islington Living Streets, she is campaigning with a group of gardeners to convince the council to implement a process for community parklets. And she’s very pleased to be part of the group of tree protectors for the 7 endangered trees at Highbury Corner.
With thanks to Lucy Facer for her beautiful artwork for our logo and to the many inspirational individuals who are sustaining Islington.
