LCON recently reviewed its strategy in light of the growing climate emergency. LCON’s overall aim has been extended to reflect an ambition to contribute to tackling climate change beyond North Oxford: “that North Oxford contribute to ambitious CO2 reductions by 2030 including a zero-carbon Oxford”.
We hope to contribute to substantial carbon emission reductions by 2030 through:
- collaborating with community groups across Oxford,
- engaging with the city and county councils and other organisations, and
- helping individuals to maximise leverage, as we move from individual to societal change.
In light of the ongoing Coronavirus situation the 2020 activities focus on ongoing dialogue and collaboration with other groups and organisations, as well as a programme of online events including regular Climate Cafes, Climate Conversation workshops, and speaker events. We will continue to focus on the areas of home energy, transport, food, trees and community. In addition, we plan to contribute to greater awareness and understanding around consumption and waste including a speaker event on sustainable fashion. You can read our strategy here.
