The Ubele Initiative: Weekly News

July 3rd, 2023

News and information from our partners, collaborators and more on their exciting opportunities and events for each week. Be sure to check in to keep up to date with industry news.



Last Friday some of the Ubele staff attended Wolves Lane to hear more about the transformational work they are doing on site. It's going to be an absolutely incredible space. We met the team working on the sustainable build using all natural materials - we've got straw bale walls and almost zero plastic! We're hoping to move in soon - May 2024!

The GLA and Haringey Council will be visiting our site on Friday 14th July and we look forward to welcoming them.
