Camden’s ‘Think & Do’ Pop Up is a community space to give people in Camden the chance to come together to develop ideas and projects tackling the climate and ecological crisis. The creation of a new civic space is a direct follow on from Camden’s Citizens’ Assembly on the Climate Crisis held in July 2019 which resulted in 17 recommendations. At its Full Meeting on 7th October 2019, the Council unanimously agreed to take forward all these recommendations.

Camden’s Climate Action Plan for 2020-2025
Think & Do has been working to support the adoption of Camden’s Climate Action Plan for 2020-2025.

What if we created a special wraparound edition of the Camden New Journal written from the year 2030?
Neighbours, artists, activists, students, businesses and dreamers. What would Camden look like in 2030 if our borough rises to the challenges of tackling the climate emergency and social inequality? What news and issues would fill our local newspaper?
Think & Do Projects
Phase 1 of Think & Do Camden generated around 90 ideas for new projects. Many were similar and have been grouped into eight community projects. See the Projects page for more information. Phase 2 and lock-down meant that we embarked upon an inspiring series of webinars. We hosted over 40 webinars, which over 800 people have attended. For more information, please see our archive of newsletters and our list of current projects.
Phase 3 is now up-and-running with our Think and Do pop-up concept. See here where we have created posters at the Kentish Town Library.
