We’ve all heard the term green wash…well, what about green wish?  

In Camden we are lucky to have an incredible assortment of active volunteer community groups who are surging ahead with projects to tackle the climate crisis, address social inequality and inspire us all.  

Are any of you wonderful Ham&High’ers reading this involved in a Camden based business? Are you passionate about playing your part to help Camden achieve its net zero emission goals by 2030? Could your business's ESG (environmental, social, and governance) goals help support a people-powered eco-system which is resilient to climate and social injustice?  

Debbie Bourne will be giving away trees on Saturday.
