Enfield Council Environment Forum

The success or not of Enfield’s Climate Change strategy will depend on how it involves the community from the bottom up but sadly its new Environment Forum does not do that and excludes many groups including many set up to specifically address climate change.

This has been the approach of Enfield Council all along to involve only those it wants and to exclude others.It certainly will not engage the wider community. Thank goodness for the Enfield Climate Action Forum (Encaf) that was set up to do just that - a forum that consists of not 21 hand picked organisations but 60 and growing and to include any who wish to join.

You will see it excludes Roadwatch, Better Streets, Extinction Rebellion, Divest Enfield and many others.

Those handpicked are

Up to a maximum of 5 representatives from the following:

Transport for London

Train Operating Companies providing services within the Borough

London Borough of Enfield representatives of local bodies with an interest in natural and built environment

The wider membership for the Forum will consist of:

Plus 21 other members comprising 2 nominated by the Federation of

Enfield Residents and Allied Associations and 1 nominated by each of the
