2019 will mark the third year of our annual environmental campaign: Brighten Up London. There are several projects planned involving hundreds of volunteers. Everyone can take part. This could be as simple as bringing a plant into your place of work, helping a neighbour or tidying up a small green space in your local community. The vision for the campaign is to empower volunteers to make London a brighter place by bringing together small acts and celebrating these achievements together. During the 2018 campaign, 2,685 people came together to undertake 78 group projects across the city. Many more individuals made their little bit of London a Brighter place. Volunteers brightened up charity farms, community spaces, built outdoor classrooms, nature trails and even a lake!
So many people have asked us if there is something they can collectively do for the community during the summer. During Wrap Up London, hundreds of individuals came together to do something amazing together – we hope that Brighten Up London offers that second opportunity.
