Past events

Climate Action Day 2022

This year’s Leytonstone Climate Action Day was on July 9th 12-5pm in St John’s Churchyard, Leytonstone E11 1HH.
Visit the Leytonstone Climate Collective website for more details.

Film screening, meal and discussion

Join us for a community meal, film screening and a chance to discuss a vision for the future. Organised in partnership with Extinction Rebellion Waltham Forest, the Welcome Garden, Organic Lea and St. Mary’s Church, we will be showing the Landworkers’ Alliance and Black Bark Films ‘In Our Hands: Seeding Change’, a film that came out in 2017 to address some of the issues of intensive, industrial agriculture.

Through this film screening and the discussion afterwards we invite you to think more deeply about the ways in which access to good, nutritious food intersects with wider issues of privilege, race, class, and climate instability and breakdown.

Tickets are available via Eventbrite.

Climate Action day

On 6 November 2021 the community of Leytonstone wrote 125 letters to business leaders, local government and the prime minister. Watch the video to see more.

Zero Waste Festive Fair

On 4th December 2021 XRWF Families hosted an afternoon of family friendly, seasonal fun. Attendees created cards to demand urgent action on waste and the climate crisis and then marched to deliver them to Stella Creasy’s office.
