Hackney Happenings

Hackney's Pensions Committee, facing increasing local pressure, recently announced it would review its investments in fossil fuels. In anticipation of this, campaign group Divest Hackney, the Hackney Citizen and the Arcola, which is on track to become the world’s first carbon-neutral theatre, invited leading thinkers to discuss divestment.
