In this series of blogs we meet some of the amazing partners helping to deliver Just FACT, (Just Food and Climate Transition) a 5 year project in Tower Hamlets. Here, Joshua, Just FACT Mobiliser, speaks to Kennedy, one of the coordinators at London Leap.
London Leap was setup by Platform in 2015 as a project which seeks to resource, uplift, and coordinate grassroots campaigns in London, to illuminate their constituent’s solutions for a meaningful just transition in the capital.
London Leap is one of the key partners in the programme, coordinating the Blueprint Architects Group, which you can find out more about in the video below, where we meet with Kennedy, one of the coordinators at London Leap, to hear more about how it started and what their involvement in Just FACT will look like.

What is Just FACT
The Tower Hamlets Just Food and Climate Transition project led by Wen is a collaborative community led programme to create a tried and tested blueprint for a sustainable and socially just urban food system.
Although unsustainable food practices are behind some of our biggest problems in society, food also has a huge power to be part of the solution. Food is at the heart of our communities and families; it is an everyday way for us all to engage with tackling climate change, building a healthier society and injecting opportunities and equity back into our neighbourhoods.
