Low Carbon West Oxford – LCWO
LCWO was set up after the summer floods of 2007 by residents concerned about climate change and local flooding.
It is a community-led initiative which aims to combat climate change by cutting our community carbon dioxide emissions by 80 % by 2050, encouraging residents to live more sustainably, and contributing to a more cohesive and resilient community.
We seek to work in an inclusive manner and ensure that everyone who lives and works in the area has a chance to participate in and benefit from LCWO’s projects.
Kingfisher Corner (Botley Park), a wildlife area set up and maintained by LCWO volunteers, is included on the walking tour
Join us on a walking tour of Low Carbon West Oxford initiatives and installations on Wednesday 18th June in the early evening.
Flooding in Oatlands Road Winter 2014
Our first open meeting in 2014 will be on the theme of climate change and local flooding. Join us on Wednesday 21st May from 7.30pm – 9.30pm in West Oxford Community Primary School, Ferry Hinksey Road. Refreshments will be provided.
Cycling is Greener, Quicker, Faster, Cheaper, Healthier, Smarter, Sexier.
As part of Climate Week seven of our members cycled along the Botley Road during rush hour on Friday 7th March wearing hi-vis vests displaying one of the following words: Greener, Quicker, Happier, Cheaper, Healthier, Smarter, Sexier. Our aim was to encourage commuters to get on their bikes, beat the traffic jams, get fitter, save money, reduce their carbon footprint and reduce air pollution.
You can find all sorts at the Bring & Take!
Residents of West Oxford are invited to our Spring Bring & Take event on Saturday 10th May 2014 at West Oxford Community Centre from 10.30am – 12.30pm.
