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

Wanstead Climate Action (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

Stall in South Woodford, 19 June 2022

WCA member and founder of Redbridge Mums For Lungs Lydia has, as a result of a successful campaign, had this air pollution monitor installed in Elmhurst Gardens next to the playground & A406. From March it began transmitting real time data online at breathelondon.org.

It was wonderful to share ideas and tips and meet new friends at the Climate Picnic on 11 Sep. Workshops included community gardening and biodiversity, reuse and composting, air pollution & active travel, home energy, creating a hedgehog-friendly garden, letter-writing, origami animals and face-painting for kids. Thanks to everyone who came!
