How can local Clapton shops, restaurants, food production and community input be looked at afresh and linked together to improve local wellbeing?
Come to Changify Clapton on the evening of Thursay 30th May and find out... a night of discovery, spotting issues, discussion and sparking future changes!
LIGHTNING TALK - LONDON SUSTAINABILITY EXCHANGE (LSX)
Short talk and Q&A with Sumi Ejiri of LSX (London Sustainability Exchange) on three exciting collaborative projects LSX are involved in.
Sumi will shed light on how these grassroots projects are working to transform how communities and individuals in Hackney can adapt to and tackle local food, wellbeing and environmental issues. Hear the stories of change underway!
LOCAL FOOD TOUR
From inspiration to action - turn local explorer, gather evidence, and get involved in shaping ideas on how Clapton's diverse retail, food and drink scape can be adapted for the better.
Take a guided walk through Clapton’s cuisine and wellbeing landscape (from restaurants and cafes to bars, shops and other local stores), hear the stories from the owners direct, and sample their wares.
NEW FOOD-BASED IDEAS & PLANS!
Back at the venue, we’ll review the findings of our walk and join the dots between food, eating out, shopping, local produce and making a difference - hatching and shaping new ideas for the area!
Ideas fashioned by you in groups on the day go on to be posted as projects on Changify's crowdfunding service to raise awareness, build support and find backing from friends, neighbours, local businesses, high street brands and the council.
