Think & Do Camden

We brought people together to develop our strategy Camden 2025 as a vision for the future but also a call to action. We developed the strategy with residents through our citizens assemblies and with anchor institutions that care about the borough through our community challenges.
The climate crisis is an issue that affects all of us and that we all have a role to play as individuals and as organisations. We developed a Citizens’ Assembly on the Climate Crisis which is was the first organised in the country. This brought together over 50 randomly selected residents to deliberate how Camden can best tackle the climate crisis. The assembly heard a range of evidence outlining the facts of the climate crisis and the ways in which it can be tackled.​ They then developed 17 actions that should be taken by residents, community groups, businesses and the council in Camden.​ And of one those was “mobilising community groups to address the climate crisis”.
That’s why we’re hosting a space where people will be able to take part in, develop & grow activities to help people live more sustainably…and tackle the climate crisis. As we’re in a climate emergency, we gave ourselves a fortnight to set it up and six weeks to test out, a way that we’re moving from building services to building movements. And when I say we, I don’t mean the council, I mean different individuals from different walks of live who care about Camden and the climate crisis.

  5. 5. What do we want to achieve? People become more aware and involved in actions to tackle the climate crisis People feel more connected as a result of meeting others in the space Activities helping tackle the climate crisis in the space increase their reach & impact New projects are developed between people to tackle the climate crisis Relationships are strengthened between groups tackling the climate crisis

  7. 7. What is the space? • We have moved quickly to find a venue and were able to secure the old Flapjack’s café in Kentish Town for a trial period of up to six weeks. • The space will be designed in a way that attracts people to come in and that everyone feels welcome and able to contribute. • We have mobilised a group of residents to develop the design & layout of the space and will provide coffee & food. • We have worked with different services to ensure the health & safety of the space.

We are convening a group of residents who want to help promote & network the space to wider communities.
  9. 9. What will the council do in the space? • The space will be run in a way that the council tests & learns how to use spaces to mobilise people to take action around common causes, in this case the climate crisis. • We will enable staff to test & learn how to support people to develop projects to tackle the climate crisis in the space. • We are convening a group of residents & staff to explore how we learn & adjust during the six weeks.

  20. 20. What are the risks & mitigations? Risks Mitigations Not enough notice will have given to people to join the activities • Use the Council’s channels & networks to promote the activities • Ask groups running the activities to promote them too • Use content from the activities taken place to attract more people • Design the space so it attracts people in walking past Doesn’t feel like a space which is co-designed with people • The look and feel of the space will reflect the shared ownership of the challenge, and will be co-designed, co-produced and co-delivered • Invited 30 groups tackling the climate crisis to put forward activities, skills & resources to help shape the programme of activity and design of the space Doesn’t feel inclusive for everyone to feel welcome • We will use our other different networks to invite them to promote activities to their communities and run activities that tackle the climate crisis • We will develop a set of principles around inclusive engagement to be applied to all activities run in the space
  21. 21. What are the risks & mitigations (cont.)? Risks Mitigations Doesn’t feel like this is a space for social action to tackle the climate crisis • Building programme of activities around five themes of the citizen’s assembly for the climate crisis • Connect people in the space to other projects taking forward the proposals from the citizen’s assembly Six weeks isn’t enough to have any meaningful impact • We do not know yet what resources will be needed to help build social action and climate emergency projects happen. The Council will be aspirational and will, at the very least, share the challenge of how we access resources, and anything else that is needed. • Programme of activities will be curated to help people develop ideas and projects over the six weeks. Will review the project through a weekly check-in, which will also serve to evaluate how effective we’re achieving the outcomes and what we need to adjust. • Living room space in Kentish Town Library and the Neighbourhoods space in Kentish Town will provide spaces to continue hosting these activities & projects as part of a wider network of organisations • Other spaces might be identified for ongoing action across the borough
