Shifting Gear: A Radical Change for Cycling @ Rose Hill Community Centre and Cheney School
Nov 10 – Nov 11 all-day
Shifting Gear: A Radical Change for Cycling @ Rose Hill Community Centre and Cheney School | Rose Hill | England | United Kingdom

The two-day event, sponsored by Freeths, is designed for council officers, transport planners, politicians and campaigners. It features a range of keynote speakers – including design and sustainable transport expert, Lynn Sloman; and cycling tsar and former cycling commissioner for London, Andrew Gilligan – but the emphasis of the event will be on discussion and debate across a wide range of workshops throughout the conference programme. Workshop subjects include: inclusive cycling, funding, local cycling and walking infrastructure plans (LCWIPs), changing travel behaviour, workplace cycling initiatives, Bikeability, effective campaigning, the role of social media, the application of cycling research, and the role of cargo bikes and e-bikes in urban environments. These workshops, led by national and local experts, are designed to inform but also to enable discussion and debate.
Please note Friday is at Rose Hill Community Centre and Saturday is at Cheney School.

However big or small your bike-related issues are, get yourself down to our open workshop. We’ve got a fully stocked community tool chest (so you don’t have to spend a fortune on a tool you’ll use twice), lots of lovely bike stands and friendly mechanics to give you a hand.

We keep a stock of all the parts that wear out regularly and we also sell secondhand parts, so if you’re looking for a deal (or something slightly rare), we might have just the thing!

Talking Climate in Texas — And Living to Tell the Tale @ The University Church of St Mary
Nov 15 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Talking Climate in Texas — And Living to Tell the Tale @ The University Church of St Mary | England | United Kingdom

Katharine Hayhoe has been named one of FORTUNE’s ‘World’s Greatest Leaders’, TIME’s ‘100 Most Influential People’ and Huffington Post’s ‘20 Climate Champions’. She is a climate scientist and an evangelical Christian based in Texas and has pioneered a way of talking about climate change that truly engages people as human beings and reaches even the most resistant of audiences.

She will be coming to Oxford on Wednesday 15th November 2017 as a guest of Climate Outreach, in partnership with The University Church of St Mary. At this not-to-be-missed event, Katharine will be in conversation with Climate Outreach’s founder George Marshall about how we can use community values to get people on board with climate change, why social science is more effective than statistics, graphs and facts in engaging people, and why we all need to get talking, and keep talking, about climate change.

The event will take place at The University Church of St Mary in Oxford on 15 November. Doors will open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start, and the event will be followed by a drinks reception.

Tickets cost £3 and will also be available on the door on the night, subject to availability. Students can attend for free upon showing a valid student ID on the night, but please register your place online to reserve a space.
This event is wheelchair accessible.
