Model My City is a community interest company set up as a local and online hub for bringing together multi stakeholders with citizens at the heart to co-produce sustainable cities and lifestyles.
We recognise that the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offer a framework for creating sustainable socities.
We want to bring the local community together with local organisations and the local council to explore challenges and opportuities for creating a safer, healthier and accesible borough - "not for self, but for all".
Initial plan of action with and for the local community:
*shine a spotlight on local businesses contributing to the SDGs to help raise awareness of what sustainble living looks like in practice
*arrange meet ups, events, workshops and build alliances to explore pathways to decarbonising our local borough
*guidance, educational and training opportunities
*deliver presentations on SDGs and the latest climate science
*crowdsourcing hosts and leads for events, pop ups and workshops targeting food waste, clothing and unwanted items swap shops, repair shops, how and why to switch to renewable energy
*local citizen science opportunities for reducing air pollution in the area, planting trees, and more
*crowdsource and co-produce relevant content for the website, develop social media campaigns in collabration with lcoal organisations and the council, produce guides, toolkits, cheat sheets, tips, myth busting and a discussion board
This is snapshot of what we would like to help deliver.
We will also plan to initiate a call to action to Camden organisations (public, private, charities, community groups etc), staff and residents to join a network for collaborating and offer opportunities to volunteer time, skills, resources or funding towards this ambition of Camden as a leading sustainable borough.
