Join local residents taking climate action at the Fulham Climate Hub

Do you want to learn about local solutions to the climate emergency and take action in your area?

Join local Fulham resident Sally Knyvette for the first meeting of the Fulham Climate Hub on Wednesday 23 February.

“It’s brilliant to see residents leading the way on local solutions to the climate emergency,” said Cllr Sharon Holder, H&F Cabinet Member for Strategy. “I’d encourage everyone to join the first session and be part of this movement for change.”

Sally’s story

Sally Knyvette is an actress, theatre director and drama teacher and has lived in Fulham for 40 years.

“I was listening to the radio recently and heard about Climate Hubs as spaces for local people to get together,” said Sally. “I thought, this is a terrific idea, why shouldn’t we do something like this in Hammersmith & Fulham?

“It isn’t about waiting around for someone else to lead the way. It’s about being empowered to take action in our own area, starting today.”

Learning and acting together

“The first session will be to talk about what is on offer from Hammersmith & Fulham Council and to identify the main issues we all want to learn about in future sessions,” said Sally.

“This should then enable us as a community to become more empowered and help us take action, both individually and communally.”

Kick-off event

Everyone is welcome to attend the first session. Speakers include:

  • Cllr Sharon Holder, H&F Cabinet Member for Strategy
  • Sharon Tomlin, community organiser at SOBUS
  • local residents and young people
  • officers from the Climate Unit at H&F Council.

The session will run from 6.30pm to 8pm on Wednesday 23 February at Sands End Arts and Community Centre, SW6 3EZ.
