Wen works both in East London and nationally to support women and their communities to take environmental action. We work across a wide range of environmental issues, including building resilient and sustainable local food systems, food growing, nature-based wellbeing sessions in women’s refuges, our Environmenstrual campaign and our work on a UK Feminist Green New Deal.
Wen has been supporting women and communities to grow their own food, and become advocates for environmental action in Tower Hamlets, for over ten years. Wen leads on the Tower Hamlets Food Partnership, bringing organisations and individuals together to build a better food system for everyone in Tower Hamlets. Members include housing providers, food charities, small businesses, schools, social enterprises, community gardeners and the council.
Wen strives to take an inclusive, feminists and intersectional approach to everything we do. This can be seen within our organisation through our participatory leadership model, the types of projects and campaigns we choose to work on and importantly we advocate movement building.
