Haringey Labour Climate Action
Working together for a greener fairer world
Want to get involved?
Our group meets every 6-8 weeks for discussion and action on local, London-wide and national issues related to climate and the environment.
We’ve campaigned and lobbied on a range of issues including single-use plastics, living streets and the Council’s Climate Action Plan, and held various public meetings including ‘Our Borough our Planet’, ‘Brexit and the Environment’, and ‘Sustainable Transport’.
We work with the Haringey Climate Forum, engaging with the Council and local stakeholders to reduce pollution and environmental degradation and achieve zero carbon as soon as possible before their 2041 deadline. We have a good working relationship with our Councillors and MP’s.
We started off in Hornsey and Wood Green Constituency, but have recently joined with Tottenham to cover the whole of Haringey.
We aim to work alongside other campaigns and individuals both within and outside the Labour Party, to Build Back Better stronger together.
We publish a regular Newsletter to a wide circulation list, as well as a Blog which you can access here. It’s for Labour Party members and all concerned people. You can support us by sharing the posts on your own social media via the links at the end. We welcome comments, suggestions and contributions from readers. Contact the editor here.

What We Stand For
We aim to campaign for action and change and to raise awareness that:
- Climate change and environmental degradation are primary and urgent global survival issues – they are already destroying livelihoods and the planet and need to be urgently and dramatically addressed to prevent further potentially disastrous consequences throughout the world.
- Climate change and environmental degradation are primary and urgent political issues – the main obstacles to tacking climate change are inadequate government and corporate measures, which in turn are due to short termism and putting profit before people and planet. The government’s response to Covid-19 has exposed the failures of this approach.
- Tackling Climate change and environmental degradation provides an opportunity for social and political transformation to a green economy based on socialist principles of sustainable growth, equality, and collective social and global responsibility. We urgently need to reclaim this government’s version of ‘Build Back Better’ and to promote a fair and sustainable recovery as the only genuinely viable solution
