We have received the following invitation from Oxford City Council:
We are delighted to invite you to the Parish Councils Climate Emergency Workshop. Join the Lord Mayor of Oxford and climate experts at this event, intended to give you, as Parish Councils and local leaders, the knowledge that you will need to take action on the climate emergency in your areas.
The workshop will take place on Saturday 28 March 2020, 9.45am – 1pm in the Long Room of Oxford Town Hall.
Please register for this free event here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/parish-councils-climate-emergency-workshop-registration-94133625207
This workshop is primarily aimed at Parish Councillors based in or near Oxford however all are welcome to attend. Please feel free to forward the registration details to anyone who may be interested.
Last year’s declaration by Oxford City Council of a climate emergency and the subsequent Citizens’ Assembly have made it clearer than ever that we in Oxford and the surrounding area must take action to avoid catastrophic climate change.
With such an overwhelming challenge it can often be hard to know where to start. Join local experts and leaders to share knowledge about the climate emergency and discuss practical steps that Parish Councils and community groups can take to tackle climate change in your local areas.
