Southwark Climate Day

Southwark Climate Day is our free community event on Saturday 22 June at London Southbank University Hub, in Elephant and Castle. The event will run from 10am to 2pm.

It’s open to everyone and is a drop-in event, meaning you can come anytime and stay for as long as you like. This year we have even more to offer as part of the day. You can:

  • join our clothes swap and bring no more than five pre-loved items which you can exchange for new-to-you items, run by LOANHOOD
  • get household items repaired (like headphones or textiles) by fixers from Repair Café Nunhead
  • get free energy advice for your home – including how to keep your home cool during the warm summer weather
  • get your bike serviced or fixed for free by a bicycle mechanic
  • buy and donate second-hand bicycles and raise money for charity
  • get a free health check (blood pressure, weight, alcohol and stop smoking advice, cancer screening and more)
  • pick up new skills, ideas, and sustainable cooking recipes
  • meet like-minded neighbours and local groups

We also have lots of exciting workshops running throughout the day, including immersive theatre and classes where you can learn new skills. Some of these workshops have limited space so you should reserve a place in advance to avoid disappointment.

Reserve your free space at this year's event
