Who Are We?

We are Wanstead Climate Action, a friendly local group who came together in 2019 over shared concerns about the climate emergency. Through community and political outreach, protest and campaigning, we aim to improve awareness of the urgent need to reduce carbon emissions to zero and stop global heating. Please join us to help make positive change.

WCA Latest News

WCA supports the Great Homes Upgrade campaign to rapidly cut bills and emissions from home heating. In March 2022 we were outside the Treasury to hand in a letter calling for funds to retrofit over 4m homes by 2025, to be greener and warmer.
Please see our guide on how to take action
