Signal Boost Initiative

Through our Signal Boost Initiative, ReForest London hosts and supports free and low-cost environmental events through the new Westminster Ponds Centre. In partnership with the London Environmental Network, dozens of environmental organizations lead public education events and volunteer training sessions.

Events are currently taking place online, but they will eventually be held at the brand new Volunteer Training Centre. The Centre will be a space dedicated to community collaboration and interactive learning. It will open as soon as gatherings are safe.

Signal Boost Initiative Goals

Through SBI, we hope that conversations and activities surrounding the environment will increase environmental knowledge and action in our community, which is why we have the following goals:

  • Dramatically increase the number of educational opportunities available in London to help individuals deepen their understanding of environmental topics and mobilize them to scale up their collective and individual actions.
  • By offering financial support, staff support and an event venue to local organizations, we are building up the environmental sector in London. Organizations will now have the opportunity to scale up their important work.

Together, these goals will help us to ‘move the needle’ on environmental action here in London and in our region.
