ABBEY PEOPLE

Abbey People are a vibrant community charity in the Abbey Ward of Cambridge, improving the lives and wellbeing of Abbey residents.

CHEMTRUST

Chemtrust is a collaboration between CHEM Trust, a UK-registered charity, and CHEM Trust Europe, a charity based in Germany. They work with policy makers, scientists, and other charities and civil society groups to campaign for restrictions on hazardous chemicals, and ensure that they are replaced with safer alternatives. They focus specifically on chemicals that can disrupt the endocrine system, and so of close relevance to Pesticide-Free Cambridge's work.

PAN-EUROPE PESTICIDE-FREE TOWNS

PAN-Europe Pesticide-Free Towns  is aimed tackling both Local Authority and private use of non-agricultural pesticides. See here for an excellent summary of case-studies around Europe for how different towns have effected herbicide-free policies. As they effectively demonstrate, there is no one-fits-all model. In some town, for example, financial constraints have led to considerable emphasis being placed on implementing public education systems for encouraging a greater degree of ‘weediness’ on the streets. See also their Alternative Methods and Techniques Guide which considers the need for different methods across different categories of public urban space.
