BLOG: Positive action for a healthier, happier, more prosperous future

2 Apr, 2021
We are stronger than we know when we work together and we have the ability to take on enormous challenges as a community.

The past year has shown us that we are stronger than we know when we work together. It’s also proven to us that we have the ability to take on enormous challenges as a community, especially when we’re protecting the people we love. 

While we’re all going to need some time to rest and heal in the months ahead, we don’t want to lose the bonds that were formed or the sense of shared purpose built over the past 12 months 

We now face another massive, urgent challenge as climate change knocks at our door, but together – and only together – we can change track to ensure a brighter, healthy future for our children. 

Please join us on 12 April at 7pm as we begin a neighbourhood conversation about how we can work together to make positive change that will secure a healthier, happier, more prosperous future for our community and the planet.  

The discussion will be facilitated by founding member of Black and Green Ambassadors and local resident, Zakiya Mckenzie. You’ll also have a chance to hear from Mark Pepper from Ambition Lawrence Weston to learn about the inspiring work happening in their community to bring jobs and opportunities to the area while reducing carbon emissions.  

Register for our Community Climate Action Project launch here, or get in touch with emily@upourstreet.org.uk to find out more.

We know we have an amazing ability to tackle huge challenges effectivley when we work together, especially when we’re protecting the ones we love. So how do we take this ability to tackle the challenge of climate change?
