Planet Earth is an amazing place. It is a home for us humans, and for millions of species of animals and plants.
However the climate and ecology crisis puts that at risk. Animals and plants are disappearing rapidly due to pollution, increased temperatures, habitat loss and illegal hunting.
In the Horniman’s Environment Champions Community (ECC), you will find:
- Answers to your climate and ecology questions
- Inspiration for positive actions to tackle climate change
- Community events focused on real change
- Activities to learn about nature and wildlife and how you can help it
Scientists say time is running out but it is not too late if we act now. We can still change things and together we can protect the home we love.
What can I expect to do when I join the ECC?
We will suggest activities you can do from home, at the Horniman or in your local community, to help you to take action in your daily life.
Activities could include:
- Finding out how to support pollinators
- Reducing plastic pollution with easy swaps
- Cooking a meat free meal
There will also be a series of events throughout the year, from litter picks to workshops.
Each one of us can make small positive changes in our day to day lives to take care of the environment.
How can I join the ECC?
The ECC is primarily an online club. It’s for all families, and free to join.
Join the Environment Champions Community via our mailing list sign up page. Enter your contact details and select the ‘Environment Champions Community resources and activities’.
You’ll then receive our monthly newsletter with a link to join the Facebook group. All the resources and activities will be shared in the Facebook group, so make sure you join the Facebook group! You can also share your own progress and tips with the rest of the club.
Climate and Ecology at the Horniman
In 2019 The Horniman Museum and Gardens declared a climate and ecological emergency. The creation and running of the ECC is a key part of our Climate and Ecology Manifesto which was announced in 2020.
