Introducing our new Lead Programme Manager

Hi there! My name is Mim Saxl and I’m the new Lead Programme Manager for Low Carbon West Oxford.

A bit about me: I have been working in the environmental sector as a campaigner and network builder for over ten years, with a focus on empowering community-level action on climate change.

I cut my teeth running a training programme for COIN (now Climate Outreach), and have also worked for the British Council, NERC, Stop Climate Chaos and local foodie social enterprise Cultivate, for which I am now a Director. I’ve been involved in Barracks Lane Community Garden and East Oxford Farmers’ and Community Market, and am a serious foodie, so look out for some fun food stuff in the months to come. I’m also a photographer, and have my own freelance business, Mim Saxl Photography.

Before joining the LCWO team, I ran agile-ox at the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute, working to build more links and collaboration between researchers and Oxfordshire’s inhabitants, before leaving to have my second daughter, born last October .

I’ve joined LCWO for 2 days a week from June, and will be working Mondays and Fridays – hopefully often to be found with my laptop in the WOCA Cafe, so pop by and say hello!
