A range of community connections

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Low Carbon West Oxford’s community connections gave them a head start when it came to engaging local people. One member of the core group had spent ten years as Chair of the Local Community Association helping to build community interaction. Two others had been key leaders behind other local environmental groups with a large body of members and another had been Chair of the Parent-Teachers Association of the local school. The core group members were able to bring these groups on board to create a critical mass of supporters and to build momentum.
