Why Environment and Sustainability Matter
As a grant-giver and creative placemaker, the Foundation for Future London is proud to invest in sustainability and net zero now across all sectors in the four boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest in East London.
Our role is to connect East London communities with the new East Bank cultural quarter and regeneration area, which is currently coming up in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park — and that means people and place.
It’s vital that we care about the environment and sustainability. Why? Because they are crucial elements of caring for people and their physical, mental and spiritual health and wellbeing – and our communities.
Green, grey and blue spaces inspire creativity, with artists playing a vital role to help us reimagine and engage with those spaces.
During Covid-19 lockdown, outdoor spaces and connecting with nature and the environment helped many people during difficult times, creating a deeper appreciation for our public parks, waterways and squares. And the Foundation is continuing to invest in health and place programmes and collaborative projects.
