Recruiting participants and supporters

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Low Carbon West Oxford delivered a leaflet to every household in their community to inform residents about the Low Carbon Living Programme, inviting them to participate and to become more widely involved with the group as members or volunteers. The leaflets were delivered by a team of 18 volunteers and were followed up with door-to-door visits. More than 100 people filled in and returned the leaflets, including 60 applicants for the Low Carbon Living Programme, 23 applicants for carbon footprinting, 35 new voting members, 23 new volunteers, and 75 new supporters.
