Nature Rights @ Headington Hill Hall (Green Room)
Jun 19 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

A very interesting-looking Oxford Green Week event brought to you by colleagues of the duo who brought Oxford in 8 Breaths to the West.

 

Is human existence always at a cost to nature?

Nature Rights will take you on a journey of discovery travelling through time looking at humans’ relationship to nature.

What are your attitudes and beliefs towards the other beings that share this world? What do you think about rights of nature? Should nature have rights?

Nature Rights is an invitation to participate in a discussion looking at these questions.

Maximum 14 people

Be part of it! Creating a “One Planet Oxfordshire” @ Environmental Change Institute
Jun 20 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Come and find out about the new One Planet Oxfordshire initiative.

“Helping Oxfordshire move towards a greener and healthier future where everyone enjoys a good quality of life”

This event will cover the background to the initiative and introduce some of the key partners and stakeholders already involved.

Bioregional is leading an international ‘One Planet Cities’ project, funded by the KR Foundation. Bringing together councils, organisations, businesses, schools and community groups in four city regions, in Canada, South Africa, Denmark and the UK to help make better places to live.

Working together in each city region, these organisations will co-create locally owned sustainability action plans that present a route to a sustainable future.  Bioregional’s One Planet Living framework will be used to structure the plans. These ten simple principles – from health and happiness and sustainable food to zero carbon energy – provide a common language to talk about sustainability and to drive change.

Oxfordshire County Council, working alongside Bioregional Oxfordshire are inviting partners across the county to come together to create a ‘One Planet’ action plan.

This event is one of Mim’s top picks for Oxford Green Week 2018!

Local produce market @ St. Nicolas Church, Abingdon
Jun 22 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

The St Nic’s local produce and craft market is back! Every Friday morning between 11am and 1pm there will be stall in the little garden at the top of Stert Street (in the church if wet) selling fresh veg, local eggs, home-baked cakes and preserves, plants, seedlings and flowers.

Go early to get the best selection!

Even more important, if you have any produce to sell, you can do so at the market provided you collect the money and any unsold items promptly at 1pm, and donate 10% of the takings to St Nicolas Church funds. To join the happy band of producers, email Gilly Osborne ongho@dial.appleinter.net.

We are very happy to support this well-established venture bringing excellent, incredibly fresh local food right into the centre of town. Please help make it a success!

The Market is run completely by volunteers – we have a pool of about 60 people involved and about 15 work on any Saturday morning to run the market.
