About us.....

Abingdon Carbon Cutters is a Community Action Group formed to help reduce the carbon footprint of Abingdon in response to climate change, and to promote a sustainable and resilient lifestyle for our town as fossil fuel stocks decline. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at St Ethelwold's House, which is here.

At some meetings, we have guest speakers to present various topics, and at others we discuss our own personal actions to address climate change. The group has a focus on encouragement, both of one another, and of the town community.

Workshops this weekend

What does the future hold?
Transition Oxford invites you to two linked workshops this Saturday and Sunday, from 2pm to 5.30pm both days. We are going to develop broadbrush scenarios – alternative stories about the future – to help understand and communicate what kind of transition is needed. Our scenarios will provide a foundation for the Transition Oxford Plan.

All are welcome at either or both of the workshops at the Old Music Hall, 106-108 Cowley Road, OX4 1JE (by G&Ds).

Saturday 28 March, 1400 to 1730
* Exploring forces that could shape Oxford’s future
* Identifying possible surprises that could bring a change of direction
* First thoughts on scenarios for Oxford Sunday 29 March, 1400 to 1730
* Choosing scenarios to work with
* Developing the storylines
* Thinking through the implications
There will be hot drinks and cake.
£5 suggested donation per workshop
