Camden Think & Do
Continue to grow a community ecosystem that is resilient, and responsive to climate, environmental and social injustice.
Think & Do is the combined effort of a number of environmentally-minded volunteers and staff, each inspired with a ‘What If…’ vision of how the future could be. Read more…
Think & Do will co-design and implement creative solutions to needs identified at a local level, with partners ranging from residents and local councils to schools, businesses, and the whole community.
People from all walks of life are coming together to address the climate crisis, inequality, and division to build a better future. If we act as individuals, it will be too little. But if we act as one big community, it might just be enough, and it might just be in time!

London Sharing Spaces Launch: Fun & Funding!
When: 1st November between 3pm-8pm
Where: Ampthill Estate, London, NW12JX
We are thrilled to announce that, in partnership with Ashden, we have received funding to roll out our Sharing Spaces project across London. Thanks to the fantastic sponsorship from the Kusuma Trust, six more Sharing Spaces will be launched in three other London boroughs, plus two more in Camden.
Sharing Spaces, one of Think & Do’s flagship projects, are Climate and Social action hubs where communities come together to have fun sharing stories, food, skills and stuff: safe, diverse spaces where residents develop projects to tackle the climate and ecological crisis.
Are you a part of a community organization, or work for a local authority? Would you like to help turn an underused space in your borough into a Sharing Space? Do you have a space in mind?
To find out how you could be funded and supported by Think & Do and Ashden to launch a Sharing Space near you please join us at our launch event on Wednesday 1st November, Ampthill Estate, London NW12JX. Pop in anytime between 3pm-8pm. There will be free veggie supper created by local chefs from the Sharing Space Eats. Details on the poster! Sign up here.
