Talkshop climate event planned
We are planning – on Saturday 14 March – to hold an event called a ‘Talkshop‘. This will focus on what the City might be able to do the mitigate climate change. Some of you may recall that we were hoping to run Citizen’s Assembly but we were unable to secure funding for what would have been a much more expensive event.
Talkshop is a much shorter exercise and involves people, in groups, looking at various ideas to help reduce global warming in the City. There are suggested ideas which will be issued on the day but you are free to suggest your own of course. To give you a taste of the ideas, one is from Todmorden called ‘Incredible Edible’ and where a handful of people starting growing food to share and there are now 70 sites around the town. Oxford has set up Climate Cafés to enable people to drop in and chat about how to improve the climate. Successful apparently.
This is in place of the normal Democracy Café which would have happened on that day but otherwise, the time, 10:00 am and the place, the Playhouse are the same. It is free.
We are hoping for a good turnout but it is just possible we will have too many in which case you will be invited to stay as an observer. If you do decide to come, please be prompt! It is run to a tight timetable and latecomers will find it difficult to catch up.
Don’t forget it’s the normal Democracy Café tomorrow, Saturday 9th February 2020 at 10:00
