Low Carbon Oxford Week takes shape

For one week this summer the environment takes centre stage in Oxford as we celebrate all things green and sustainable in our city during the first ever Low Carbon Oxford Week. The week of 14-22 June will see a wide variety of inspiring events popping up all over our city. From film showings to food fairs; ‘schwopping’ to super-local suppers; cycling to upcycling - there will be something on offer for everyone and the whole of Oxford is invited.

The high profile LCO week aims to entertain and engage, and to give everyone in Oxford an opportunity to be a part of making Oxford one of the greenest cities in the UK.

How can my project get involved?

Groups and organisations are invited to get involved in LCO Week in one or more of the following ways:

  • Register an existing event ‘green’ event happening during LCO Week – eg weekly farmers market, bike rides, webinars
  • Add a ‘green’ theme to existing events during LCO Week – eg ‘green’ sermons, upcycling activities in schools
  • Work with other organisations to put on a special event for LCO Week – eg film showings, gigs, talks, open days, tours
  • Provide a free venue - eg a shop window for some artwork, a lecture theatre for a talk or a café for a film showing
  • Donate a prize to the LCO Week pledge competition

Current events planned by CAGs include
