Aims & Activities
Imagine electric cars, state of the art buses and cyclists move fluidly and quietly along Green Lanes and Crouch End High Street. People walking and cycling to work in Tottenham’s thriving green business sector. The view from Alexandra Palace glistens with solar panels crowning the rooftops, producing clean electricity. Our homes are warm and cosy in winter and our energy bills are lower!
This is the Haringey we can create if we choose to – cleaner, greener and more prosperous.
These are the aims of the Haringey Climate Forum. Haringey Council cannot achieve these by themselves. They need support from the UK Government, but also support from Haringey people. We all need to work together to tackle all the sectors that are causing greenhouse gases to damage our climate, waste that pollutes our roads, rivers and oceans and particulates that cause air pollution.
- Health and Wellbeing
Most of these sectors are addressed by Haringeys’ (draft) Zero Carbon plans, though it’s primary focus on carbon reduction means that Nature and Wellbeing do not have specific action plans. The Council is currently working on a revised Biodiversity Action Plan which is expected to be published for consultation in autumn 2020.
