Ealing Friends of the Earth is a vibrant group of individuals keen to tackle the big environmental issues with real action. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month, currently via Zoom, at 7.45pm. Meetings last about 90 minutes. We hope eventually to return to in-person meetings, which will take place at St. John’s Church, Mattock Lane, West Ealing, London W13 9LA. We welcome new members to simply join the discussion and, when possible, our campaigns as well.

Ealing Transition is concerned with practical, local action on climate change, energy and food security. We hold regular events and meetings to spread awareness of climate change, to imagine a zero-carbon sustainable future and plan on how to get there, to help build Ealing’s self-reliance in areas such as food, energy, jobs, community and economy, and to provide a forum for people in Ealing to exchange ideas and skills. We also run a number of ongoing community projects, including a Community Energy and Solar Schools project, a Community Orchard, a Community Garden, and a local Bee Project. The Transition Towns movement was born out of the conviction that human beings are incredibly resourceful, and that together we can make the transition to a resilient future enjoyable and effective.

Southall Transition is an initiative seeking to work from the grassroots in encouraging local people to think and act together in a more sustainable way. They are a part of the Transition Towns movement which works to build community resilience in the face of climate change and future energy scarcity.
In Southall, they work to reduce environmental degradation and decrease fossil fuel dependency, however they are mostly focussed on increasing food security and building resilience in the face of economic uncertainty.
Activities include screening documentaries, providing training and re-skilling, and facilitating discussions to find solutions that can be implemented at the local level.
