"The roundtable brought together organisations as diverse as Tower Hamlets council, Unionlearn, ippr, Friends of the Earth, the London Development Agency, Bikeworks, YouDev, the Young Foundation, Hackney City Farm, the Forest Recycling Project, Aspire, the Skills Development Agency and the UK Youth Climate Coalition, all with the aim of identifying green employment opportunities in the East London area. Subsequent round tables have included Tower Hamlets College, Fairbridge, Capacity Global, and the UNITE and UCU trade unions."
