August 18th 2019: Thames stroll from Richmond to Kingston

This walk connects two busy outer south-westerly London centres, Richmond and Kingston, planned to avoid busy roads. We start our river walk at 1pm at the Railway Tavern, 28-29 The Quadrant, Richmond, TW9 1DN, one block to the left of the station, then take a quiet footpath to the Thames and London's oldest river bridge; we walk through pleasant green scenery, in a general southerly direction, past Teddington Lock to Kingston where we also avoid any High Street walking by following a park walk back to the train station and the adjacent bus terminal. The walk is about 4.5 miles in length, all on level compact ground without stiles. This stretch is quiet, with plenty of nature, some river islands and bird life to explore. There are a number of options on the approach to Kingston to conclude the afternoon over a drink.

Everyone welcome to join us.

Richmond is on the District line, Kingston is served by Southwestern Railway connecting to Wimbledon, Clapham Junction and Waterloo. Both places are also well served by bus routes towards the centre.

The fossil fuel industry is killing us.

They have five times the amount of coal, gas and oil that is safe to burn - and they are planning on burning it all. Left to their own devices, they'll push us past the brink of cataclysmic disaster - life as we know it will be irrevocably altered forever. Unless we rise up and fight back. Do The Math follows the climate crusader Bill McKibben as he works with a rising global movement in a David-vs-Goliath fight to change the terrifying math of the climate crisis. This growing groundswell of climate activists is going after the fossil fuel industry directly, energizing a movement like the ones that overturned the great immoral institutions of the past century, such as Apartheid in South Africa. The film follows people who are putting their bodies on the line the Keystone XL Pipeline and leading universities and institutions to divest in the corporate polluters hellbent on burning fossil fuels no matter the cost.

Location: the screening will take place upstairs in the meeting room.

Recommended donation: £4/person
