Climate Connectors

Think & Do has been working for the last year with the Camden Climate Alliance (CCA) on the Climate Connectors Project. The aim of the project is to encourage businesses across the borough to commit to working in partnership with local schools and community groups on projects aimed at improving sustainability and encouraging biodiversity. This is one of the CCA’s business climate change pledges.

Is your business interested in enabling rewilding across the borough through sponsorship or volunteering time? Or offering pro bono support to help support important local groups like Power Up North London? Maybe supporting Refugee Community Kitchen to eradicate surplus and waste food from across the borough is your passion? What about sponsoring a garden in a local school?

If your business is interested in meaningfully supporting the Camden community, Think & Do, the climate connector between council, schools, and community, is here to help!

We also co-host regular ‘Green’ networking events where businesses come together to share learnings and form real life connections in the Camden Eco-System.

Examples of recent Climate Connector activities include:

A volunteer urban rewilding morning with 40 staff from Anthesis who came to help at the Camden Collective’s new site and base for the Camden Business Beeline. Work completed included building planters out of pallets for trees, planting fruit trees and plants, turning reclaimed material into planters

Climate Connectors Workshop

Camden Primary Schools Green Dragons Den event where schools came to pitch in person to receive a £200-£500 grants to kick start their sustainability projects. The event was kindly hosted and sponsored by Troup Bywaters + Anders, other sponsors include 3VB, Media Insurance Brokers and Clearcast. Thanks also to the Veolia ECO team who came to run a workshop on waste & recycling, Camden Clean Air Initiative whose workshop centered around clean air, St. George PLC / Berkeley Group who delivered a talk on Sustainability and Curriculum.

Watch out for news on another Green Dragons den event in spring 24, and a secondary school Sustainers Fest in early 24.
