About 20 people attended this first on-line meeting and used the technology very successfully. Our thanks to Chris Church from Oxford Friends of the Earth who provided an informative talk on what a net zero carbon Oxfordshire might look like in 2040 if climate change has been tackled effectively. The report he talked about covers homes and settlements, transport, work, energy, food and nature. If you haven’t read it yet you can view it here.
There was also an interesting discussion afterwards about the impact of the pandemic and the risk that as we emerge from the difficulties, attention could be deflected away from pressing environmental issues. Particularly the need to tackle the climate breakdown in a short time frame to avoid further highly damaging disruption.
