Retrofit Kentish Town

This is a sub-group of Transition Kentish Town, which focuses on retrofit in the Kentish Town area, recognising the urgent need to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions to help slow climate breakdown and reduce fuel bills. The aim is to encourage, educate and enable people to start retrofit projects on their homes and businesses and to this end they are holding regular workshops to share information about installing insulation and low carbon heating technologies to reduce energy use. They also aim to offer individual support and guidance. For details see their website:

Think and Do Camden

A lively offshoot from TKT, Camden Think & Do has the vision to grow a community ecosystem that is resilient, and responsive to climate, environmental and social injustice by co-designing and implementing creative solutions to needs identified at a local level, with partners ranging from residents and local councils to schools, businesses, and the whole community. For details of their activities, including a monthly Sharing Space at the British Library, see Think&Do Camden. See also the separate Camden Forest website.

Transition Kentish Town (TKT)

Transition Towns are an international movement, sponsoring local voluntary action, both campaigning and practical, in support of the environment and climate emergency. Our local branch Transtion Kentish Town organises Nature Connections Walks, to which members of Camden LETS are invited. The next one is on Saturday 29th June - see Hampstead Heath Midsummer Ramble.
