Findings from low carbon learning workshops in Oxford City
This report outlines the findings from a number of low carbon conversations/workshops held with previously unengaged groups in Oxford in order to (a) help widen and deepen engagement and action on low carbon issues in the city (b) inform the vision, work priorities and communications messages by key actors in this area including Low Carbon Oxford, the Community Action Groups and the Low Carbon Hub and (c) provide a working context for Oxford City Council and other front line staff, particularly those who are not engaged in LCO. .
The workshops were held with 36 residents from the Oxford Hindu Temple Association, the Polish Association and young mothers and toddlers group, Littlemore over 50’s club, and Barton Meadow Brookes Residents Association.
The workshops were led by Ruth Mayne from the Environmental Change Institute as part of a University of Oxford funded secondment with Low Carbon Oxford, with support from Oxford City Council’s Communities and Neighbourhoods Team and Climate Outreach (formerly COIN) who commented on the design of the workshops.
