Fast Forward Oxfordshire

Oxford Friends of the Earth is a thriving and effective local group that has been active for over 40 years. Our purpose is to work together to promote a healthy and sustainable environment

Fast Forward Oxfordshire is a new (October 2019) publication from Oxford FoE.

It is about how we move ‘fast forward’ to a safe zero-carbon future. It looks at what our society might be like in Oxfordshire in 2040 if we have tackled the climate crisis effectively and are avoiding the worst consequences. It covers Homes and settlements, Transport, Work, Energy, Food, and Nature.

Alongside these visions are policies for each of these six issues that we need to implement now if we are to have a good chance of delivering that positive future. Some policies need national action but many can be taken forward by  our councils.  We also highlight changes that are happening now – examples of what cities and communities across the UK and around the world are already doing that show how we get to a much safer future. In many cases national change is being led locally, and here in Oxfordshire we are well placed to deliver real innovation.
