Camden Pop-Up – Think & Do

Camden Think & Do pop-up

We’re getting in touch from Camden Council because we’ve just opened a pop-up ‘think & do’ community space for climate and eco-action in Kentish Town. This is in response to the Citizens’ Assembly recommendation to do more to bring existing community groups together to work on tackling the climate crisis.

The aim of the pop-up is to give people in Camden the chance to take part in, run and grow activities that get people more involved in tackling the climate crisis. From clothes swaps to meals made from surplus veg, there are a variety of events coming up that we’d love you to attend.

Where is the community space and when is it open?

We’re the teal blue building at 315 Kentish Town Rd, Kentish Town, London NW5 2TJ (opposite the library). We’re open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am – 8pm now until 7th December.

What is happening at the pop-up?

    1. It is great to hear from you.

      The pop-up store in Kentish Town is now being run as a community cafe by Vegbox (315 Kentish Town Road, NW5 2TJ): . It is open Monday — Saturday 10 am — 6 pm. Vegbox also do local organic fruit & vegetable deliveries.

      Otherwise, Think & Do have a website where you can find out about what they are up to. I am sure they would love to hear from you. Many of their activities are held in the cafe.
