Sustainable Wallingford is a group of people living around Wallingford who want to help build a greener future, with Wallingford more able to respond to climate change.
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. Together they organise events and projects to take action on issues including waste, transport, food, energy, 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
promote and organise activities about carbon reduction
We focus on issues relating to food, waste reduction, energy, education and transport. We have paused much of what we do during the pandemic and are now reviewing what we have done before and starting some new projects which we hope 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.
