Hackney Greens Events

Come along to one of our events and meet other Hackney residents with shared green values.  We hold a monthly social event that anyone can attend in addition to other local events that we hold or participate in.

  • Hackney Downs - Siân Berry for Green Mayor!

    Saturday, December 05, 2020 at 10:30 AM · 2 rsvps
    225 Evering Road in London, United Kingdom

    Join our action day at 10:30am Saturday 5th Dec!



    With the Mayor of London election on the horizon, we know that leafleting is one of the best ways to build support for our Candidates and win green votes in Hackney.

    Leaflet delivery is a highly effective tool to get our message out. It is enjoyable (great exercise!) and all instructions and directions will be provided.

    To keep our community safe, we will be following the post-lockdown guidance by staying outdoors in groups of no more than 6. Please bring your face mask and hand sanitiser.

    We look forward to seeing you there. Please RSVP below.

  • November Book Club: Veganism, Sex and Politics

    Sunday, November 22, 2020 at 07:30 PM · 8 rsvps

    This November we'll be discussing (with guest appearance from the author!) C. Lou Hamilton's book: Veganism, Sex and Politics.

    Veganism is so much more than what we eat. It’s about striving to live an ethical life in a profoundly unethical world. Is being vegan difficult or is it now easier than ever? What does veganism have to do with wider struggles for social justice – feminism, LGBTQ+ politics, anti-racism, environmentalism?

    C. Lou Hamilton’s compulsively readable book dives deep into the heart of these questions. Veganism, Sex and Politics explores the potential dangers and irresistible pleasures of living a vegan life.

    Join us for a relaxed discussion on themes brought up in the book.

    You can order the book from the publisher here

    Or from one of our local bookshops (or borrow from a friend!)

  • October Policy and Ideas Meeting

    Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 07:30 PM · 12 rsvps

    Our regular monthly Policy and Ideas meetings are an opportunity for members to contribute to and discuss local party strategy and to understand and inform policies.

    Each month we will select two or three topics to give each one enough space to have a detailed discussion and to make real progress.

    This month we have two topics:

    - The Wardle Street Project
    We are pleased to welcome Nemone Mercer from Core ARTS to talk about their plans to green up Wardle Street below our community roof garden and transform Homerton Grove with a meadow strip and orchard.

    - Living with Learning Difficulties
    A discussion with Patricia Charlesworth about the experience of people with learning difficulties particularly during the pandemic, and how the Green Party can be more inclusive
