Think & Do - Emerging Lessons

We brought people together to develop our strategy Camden 2025 as a vision for the future but also a call to action. We developed the strategy with residents through our citizens assemblies and with anchor institutions that care about the borough through our community challenges.
The climate crisis is an issue that affects all of us and that we all have a role to play as individuals and as organisations. We developed a Citizens’ Assembly on the Climate Crisis which is was the first organised in the country. This brought together over 50 randomly selected residents to deliberate how Camden can best tackle the climate crisis. The assembly heard a range of evidence outlining the facts of the climate crisis and the ways in which it can be tackled.​ They then developed 17 actions that should be taken by residents, community groups, businesses and the council in Camden.​ And of one those was “mobilising community groups to address the climate crisis”.
That’s why we’re hosting a space where people will be able to take part in, develop & grow activities to help people live more sustainably…and tackle the climate crisis. As we’re in a climate emergency, we gave ourselves a fortnight to set it up and six weeks to test out, a way that we’re moving from building services to building movements. And when I say we, I don’t mean the council, I mean different individuals from different walks of live who care about Camden and the climate crisis.

  14. 14. What have we learnt so far? Creating a shared sense of purpose & urgency helps mobilise staff who have specialist expertise we need Making the best of people’s skills & time means we’ve needed to adjust what different staff (and residents) are responsible for Participation isn’t sufficient on its own without people who can take forward the impact beyond the 6 week activity Balancing the need to ensure compliance with enabling the community to take the lead creates challenges & opportunities Thinking about the long- term benefits whilst working at such a fast pace means you have to think & work out in the open Showing the co-design we’re doing mobilises people & organisations beyond the environmental sector to want to “think & do” in Camden
  15. 15. What could happen after Think & Do? • Evaluate impact & share learning of Think & Do • Develop model for how other neighbourhoods/areas can adapt Think & Do • Develop offer for organisations to run Think & Do in their spaces • Connect projects developed with local networks • Prioritise working with those projects developed at T&D that build on Citizens Assembly proposals • Connect up projects in Camden using space to support collaboration to identify opportunities to work together
