Waking up to NO2
Working with local residents, activists from Camden Green Party measured nitrogen dioxide air pollution at more than 50 locations around Highgate, Hamsptead, Kentish Town, Gospel Oak and Cantelowes during November and December 2015. The results are shocking, with very few locations below the legally binding limit and some streets approaching double this. Come to our public meeting on April 5, 2016, to discuss what action we can take to improve things - read more

London living wage
Camden Green Party is campaigning for everyone who works for Camden council, including for its contractors, to be paid the London Living Wage, calculated to provide a basic decent standard in the capital, rather than the inadequate national minimum wage - read more
Camden Green Party has consistently supported local shops and traders against the march of faceless chain stores and multinational supermarkets. Local members have carried out surveys of some of our local high streets as part of the 'Clone Town Britain' campaign by the New Economics Foundation and helped fight rent rises in Fortess Road, Kentish Town.
The Green Party and Camden-based Global Women's Strike were among the organisers of the campaign to preserve the right to protest and stop the Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill, which includes clauses that criminalise protests over a large area around Parliament Square.
Stopping HS2 in its tracks
Camden Greens first started organising community involvement in High Speed 2 in 2010, organising public meetings and bringing campaigners and experts to the Town Hall. The Green Party, including leader Natalie Bennett who lives in Somers Town, has led the way nationally in questioning and opposing this huge project, which would represent an enormous misuse of funds and would further focus funding, people and business on London, rather than producing a more regionally balanced UK economy.
Campaigning for warm, enery-efficient homes
We've been campaigning to provide warm, comfortable, affordable-to-heat homes for all Camden residents. The cheapest,
greenest energy is the energy that you don't use - we want to see pilot schemes to provide high quality retrofitting to complete streets of homes, by far the most cost-effective way of working.
Ensuring a fair deal for leasholders
We've been working borough-wide with leaseholders of council properties, ensuring they get value for money and decent results when capital works are done on their properties.
