Situation

Oxfordshire’s environmental assets are under huge pressure - we need our environment to help us combat climate change and to nurture our health and wellbeing. Decades of agricultural intensification and the expansion of towns and infrastructure has impacted the county particularly hard. This pressure is relentless with proposals for 3000 new dwellings per year under the Oxfordshire Plan2050 plus the OxCam Growth Arc.

Solution

The solution is to capitalize on the increasing desire amongst communities to take personal action to combat biodiversity loss and the climate emergency.
