Join our Climate Carnival and tell your climate action story

Hammersmith & Fulham Council is holding a Climate Carnival in October to celebrate the fantastic work of local residents and businesses in their efforts to create climate action together.

The carnival runs from Monday 25 October to Saturday 30 October and includes online and in-person events across the borough for people of all ages.

The council will kick start each day of the Carnival with an 8:30am online breakfast briefing. Join us here to learn how the H&F are tackling climate change and to hear what other events the council and community are hosting throughout the day.

This event will represent an exciting lead up to COP26, the United Nation’s Climate Change Conference that is being held in Glasgow in November.

Get involved

The Climate Carnival is a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about climate change and take action together.

Some of the confirmed events include:

  • an open house tour of a retrofitted, green energy home
  • an active travel festival being hosted in Lyric Square
  • a community panel discussion hosted by HF Cyclists
  • an arts and crafts festival focussed on ‘Things We Use’
  • a rain garden tour in Shepherds Bush
  • handy tips on how to compost successfully at home.

All events are free. But some events require advanced booking. Explore them all – and keep an eye out for new activities.

Climate emergency

Hammersmith & Fulham Council declared a climate and ecological emergency in 2019 and pledge to be carbon net zero by 2030. We are determined to become the country’s greenest borough.

We have made strong steps in reaching this goal and we’re working hard to:

  • improve air quality
  • promote biodiversity
  • reduce traffic congestion and pollution
  • make our streets cleaner and greener
  • work with our community to put environmental concerns at the heart of all we do.

There are many benefits that come with reducing carbon emissions and restoring nature. We envision a borough with clean air, safe streets, green space for all and a strong local economy.
