“To make Highgate green and sustainable.”
Why it matters
Sustainability is fundamental to everything we want to achieve for Highgate. These important issues were integrated throughout the Plan but we are keen that they become the focus for future initiatives.
What we’re doing
There are also many local organisations actively working on issues including solar panels, recycling, community planting and electric vehicles.
Highgate Environmental Network (HEN)
We support and are part of an eco/sustainability network of organisations and projects in Highgate. Other members include: LUX, Highgate Society Sustainable Living group, Lauderdale House, Transition Highgate and Omved Gardens, and other groups have been invited to join.
Build Back Better Highgate campaign
There is a growing movement of people calling on the government to “build back better” as the world recovers from the coronavirus pandemic. They want a new deal that puts communities – not profits – first so that life is safer and fairer for everybody.
During the Highgate Festival 2020, we facilitated a virtual launch event for Build Back Better Highgate. Speakers discussed the social, economic and environmental foundations of Build Back Better movement, with an emphasis on looking forward at how society can be restructured for the benefit of all.
