This project has been a long time in coming, but it’s here at last. An online magazine for London that cares about environmental issues and covers community news. In short, a place that wants to help make London even better.
We unashamedly focus on eco- things like how brilliant foxes are, cool cycling tips, and increasing community spaces. As part of this we also look at London’s political scene from council chambers, city hall to the Metropolitan Police and what’s happening in our areas.
We’re not going to pretend we can cover everything, but we are going to try to build this site into a place that is a vital resource for anyone who cares about our city and its inhabitants that have been drawn from every corner of the globe. Yes, we know that globes don’t have corners – it’s an expression.
Although we’re a bunch of lefty, progressive types who knit our own yoghurt and insist on locally sourcing our organic hemp that doesn’t mean we are attempting to channel Lenin or talk like a text book. We are relaxed about what the correct political line is frankly. That’s not why we’re doing this.
We can all learn from each other, probably.
Speaking of which we’re certainly not the only online London magazine worth reading. You should also check out sites like Londonist, Snipe, East London Lines and a host of others if you haven’t already – which seems like a gross breach of etiquette if true.
There’s a wealth of people out there active in their communities or plugging away for Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, local community groups, trade unions and others that simply don’t have a real voice in London. We’d like to give them a vehicle for their aspirations, let people know about the good work they are doing and take it from there.
We don’t have a team of full time journalists but we are keen as mustard and heavy drinkers – so we’re most of the way there.
Speaking of which, if you want to get in touch with a submission, an idea, an event you’d like us to advertise or just for a gentle chat about the oncoming apocalypse you are more than welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
