Across the borough, people of all ages can take part in free events that connect us to nature and explore how to care for our environment this London Climate Action Week, Saturday 24 June to Sunday 2 July.
The Council has set a target to be carbon neutral by 2030 and an ambition for a carbon neutral borough by 2040. From more green spaces to greener travel and energy efficient homes and schools, the Council is investing to make the borough greener. We cannot do this alone - together, let’s go zero!
