Many London environmental groups have seen a need for a more organized way of getting our message out to the public, so we can make significant progress in the environmental issues facing us.
In 2013, twenty-five groups gathered together to discuss the needs that a network might address. Thames Talbot Land Trust and ReForest London collaborated on a grant to Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) and were fortunate to receive funding to operate the network for three years.
LEN officially launched to the public on March 27, 2015.
The London Environmental Network was created to help protect our environment and build a sustainable community by supporting local environmental organizations improve their internal capacity and ability to deliver on their missions.
The London Environmental Network provides our member organizations with shared resources, and training, outreach and collaboration opportunities so they can become stronger and work more effectively together. It also connects groups to the London community, recruits volunteers, and promotes environmental events, initiatives and successes.
LEN was officially incorporated as a nonprofit organization in March 2018. The three formative years that LEN spent being supported by Thames Talbot Land Trust and ReForest London allowed for LEN to grow and shape our programming in a stable environment.
