Your Neighbourhood Talks - COP 26 Net Zero Carbon
Tuesday 19 October, 6pm - 8.30pm
Timber Lodge, 1A Honour Lea Avenue, London, E20 1DY
It’s your Neighbourhood, so let’s talk about it! Join us at Timber Lodge in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on 19 October, 6 – 8.30pm for a special Your Neighbourhood Talks. This event will focus on Zero Carbon living and the potential impacts of Climate Change to the lives of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park communities, business, and organisations. There will be a panel discussion and a marketplace running throughout the evening. The marketplace is a great opportunity to talk to representatives from a variety of organisations about their work on the Park and the surrounding area and any plans they may have. This event will be an opportunity to connect, share, learn and identify opportunities to collaborate locally to support each other on our journey to a more sustainable future.
The marketplace is an opportunity for stakeholders to have a ‘stall’ and informally talk to attendees about who they are, what they do, and what their zero carbon ambitions are for their organisation, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and beyond. It offers members of the community the opportunity to engage directly with partners, ask questions, share ideas, and identify opportunities for collaboration or support.
We are anticipating a lively, challenging, and inspirational debate that will explore practical challenges and ambitions as well as personal views and goals for more sustainable living. Our panellists will consist of 6 speakers living or working at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and will include representation from students, residents, community organisations, businesses, and institutions.
Throughout the evening our Vox Pop team will be on hand asking for opinions on the subject of the day. With your permission the team will make a short audio recording that will help us build a useful record of people’s experiences, thoughts, and opinions.

Your Neighbourhood Talks info
Your Neighbourhood Talks is our six-monthly resident forum, taking place each March and September and open to everyone – whether you live, work or study in the area. It provides an opportunity to meet with London Legacy Development Corporation, and many other organisations based around the Park, to discuss the impact of their work and find out how you can get involved. If you have questions about construction activity, events, education, training, jobs and other local issues, this is the place to find answers.
Each event is hosted at a different venue around the Park, providing an opportunity to explore some of the businesses and community spaces on your doorstep. Past venues have included London Stadium, the Bobby Moore Academy and Plexal at Here East.
As well as a panel discussion and venue tours, you’ll find the community marketplace at every Your Neighbourhood Talks.
