The Garden Community for Garden Lovers

Kings Cross Central Skip Garden

Kings Cross Central Skip Garden

We are dedicated to giving young people opportunities to play a part in creating a sustainable future.

Global Generation supports young people to generate change. We focus our projects on the three interdependent themes of ‘I, We and The Planet’. This approach increases awareness of self, community and the natural environment and instils young people with the confidence to generate change in the business and local community.

Pioneering projects

Our pioneering projects have demonstrated that ‘learning through doing'; 'learning and reflecting on'; and hands-on practical projects are the most effective ways to bring about change. By bringing people together we can generate change for ourselves, for others, and for the world around us.

We are creating tangible opportunities for change as our patchwork of living food sites develop and grow. A shining example is our innovative and portable Kings Cross Skip Garden, which sits on the doorstep of St Pancras International station. To our knowledge it's the first of its kind anywhere in the world.
Young people as social innovators

The Skip Garden is helping to create a bio diverse and social ecology in Kings Cross. Most importantly, it is supporting young people to play a pivotal role in transforming this part of the city and the way we live and work in it. They are being trained to become social innovators who are building gardens and inspiring others to create a new and sustainable future.

Our projects are generating individual and collective interest through our practical actions such as composting, recycling, walking to work, and thinking about where food and energy comes from. They show that everyone can make a positive contribution to their future, the future of their community and the natural world.

Creative and electric energy

The way we work creates a fertile atmosphere which enables people to access and articulate values that support change, such as respect, courage and commitment. There is a creative and electric energy that occurs when different people get together - it is building a new and dynamic sense of community in the Kings Cross area that is already rippling out to surrounding areas.
