Save the Planet @ The Hub
A 'green-friendly melting pot for new ideas'
Location: 34b York Way, N1 9AB
Description: 'The Hub' in Kings Cross is the 'new' Soho House, or so we are told. With a string of celebrity and honourary members, Channel 4 man Jon Snow but one, under an eco-friendly banner, the club is aiming to become a 'green-friendly melting pot for new ideas'.
As a social enterprise with the ambition to inspire and support imaginative and enterprising initiatives for a better world. The Hub is a global community of people from every profession, background and culture working at 'new frontiers' to tackle the world's most pressing social, cultural and environmental challenges.
They believe that there is no absence of good ideas in the world. The problem is a crisis of access, scale, resources and impact. So it felt vital to create places around the world for accessing space, resources, connections, knowledge, experience and investment.
Seems a very good idea - plus you can get a drink, a coffee, all under the glass ceiling of a Grade II listed building...can't be bad!
