Join the Plogolution!
Do you you want to play your part in making Hackney litter free, meet great people and get super fit outdoors at the same time?
Join the Plogolution team and ‘plog’ (run/walk and rubbish pick up) through East London. Starting at Victoria Park by the bandstand.
There are two routes available: a 2 mile walk and a 5k run, both of which will finish at Hackney Town Hall.
All equipment including gloves, rubbish bags and litter pickers will be provided.
Just turn up, get fit and have some fun cleaning up the local area.

Would you like to put your questions on green issues directly to the Mayor? Then come along to the second annual Hackney Mayor’s Question Time, at the Town Hall on Monday, November 26, from 7pm to 9pm. Have your say and join the conversation about the borough.

Power to Hackney
Hackney is tackling climate change head on and delivering on its commitment to be the cleanest and greenest council borough. Plans are underway to develop an Energy Company Delivery Board by early 2019.
Hackney’s energy company delivers on the urgent action required to reduce carbon and forms part of the journey towards using renewable energy across all functions by 2050.
The Council plans to utilise solar panels on 50% of Council-owned residential roof space.
It will also drive social change and support vulnerable residents with an estimated 9,700 households in Hackney suffering from fuel poverty.
