Talk: The New River

River bank, New River, off Myddleton Road N22 8NW

202109 new river talk

The New River runs from near Ware to the heart of Islington, but did you know, it is not a river at all?

As part of the Big Green Climate Festival, Extinction Rebellion Enfield will be giving a talk on the New River — its fascinating history, water privatisation and the issues facing water security as a result of climate change. There will be poetry readings from local poets too.

Talk will take place on the river bank just below Myddleton Road. Please arrive at 2.20 and bring a blanket to sit on.

Joining together to call on politicians to raise their ambition and champion action on climate change.

The Great Big Green Week will be largest event for climate and nature ever seen in the UK. Thousands of events will celebrate how communities are taking action to tackle climate change and protect green spaces, and encourage others to get involved too.

Nationwide, the Great Big Green Week is being coordinated by the Climate Coalition. Locally, we will be holding Enfield's Great Big Green Climate Festival, coordinated by the Enfield Climate Action Forum (EnCAF). EnCAF harnesses the expertise and energy of more than 80 different groups from around the borough. There will be walks, talks, an apple day, a food festival, a chance to try a bicycle or tricycle, a guided bike ride touring Enfield's wetlands, online events and an all-day fair - bringing concerned people together and celebrating our potential for joint action.
