Reviving Lambeth Friends of the Earth

There are plans to restablish Friends of the Earth Lambeth, which has been in hibernation for a couple of years.
It originated the Divest Lambeth campaign that was revived by TTB at Open Project Night and recently got a promise from Lambeth to divest its pension fund from fossil fuels. If you'd like to help shape the aims and strategies of a group that can focus the people's power to tackle environmental campaigns, from climate change to local pollution, please email Rene at     The first meeting will be Monday 17 September
