Thanks North Woolwich and Silvertown residents, we had such a great time Saturday! 

Agatha and Janette made delicious cakes and Food For All prepared an incredibly tasty meal using exceeding produce donated by supermarkets.

We also had good food for thoughts as result of our public consultation.

What do we wish for our community? What do we want to see implemented?

Lots of great dreams to transform into reality in 2013!

How to get around in the future city. Love it!

Wow went to opening of the Siemen’s Crystal building, London’s newest landmark building and the world’s first center dedicated to improving our knowledge of urban sustainability.

Urban sustainability is among the most critically important global issues of the 21st century. Over half the world’s population live in urban areas - from small cities like York, to megacities like New York - and by 2050 that proportion will rise to 70% of all humanity.

The big challenge is that cities now consume about 75% of all the world’s energy and emit around 80% of all greenhouse gases. The fight against climate change will therefore be won or lost in cities, so it’s crucial we make our urban habitats more efficient, cleaner and better to live in - not only for ourselves, but for future generations and the earth’s diverse ecosystems.

Introduce Amina and Chrystal to the kids from North Woolwich and Silvertown, bring in a donated piano and the extraordinary skills of self-taught classical pianist Hilton and this, my friends, is what you get: Newham State of Mind!  Please spread this video far and wide - it’s Olympic-sized inspiration!

This is what happened when the piano arrived. It was badly out of tune but you get an idea of what this young man was capable of. The kids in the community turned the inspiration into something wonderful with the help of Amina Gichinga (a music coach). The video of what happened next day should be ready in a couple of weeks.
