Welcome to Sustainable Wallingford!
UN Resolution 42/187 defined sustainable development as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
The UK Sustainable Development Strategy, Securing the Future, set out five ‘guiding principles’ of sustainable development:
  • living within the planet’s environmental limits;
  • ensuring a strong, healthy and just society;
  • achieving a sustainable economy;
  • promoting good governance; and
  • using sound science responsibly.

Sustainable Wallingford is a community group of people living locally and working together to help build a greener future for Wallingford.

We are part of the Community Action Group (CAG) Project of over 60 groups across Oxfordshire, at the forefront of community led climate change action.

We organise events and projects on issues including energy, waste, transport, food,biodiversity and social justice.

Our goals are to

  • help reduce the carbon footprint of Wallingford in response to climate change,
  • promote a sustainable and resilient lifestyle for our town without fossil fuels
  • carbon and energy-use reduction

 

Some of our active projects are featured on this site, and since the pandemic we are even more aware of the need for community initiatives which people will enjoy. If you want to help Wallingford adapt to the challenges which face us, take a look at who we are and what we do, and contact us. We would love to meet you
