Sustainable Wallingford is a community group of people living locally and working together to help build a greener future for Wallingford. 
In 2023 we have a new chair, Catherine Somerville, and are having informal monthly meetings, where you can meet and chat to other interested people and a speaker on a current topic. You can see dates and details in the Events sidebar of the page.

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.

Here is our stall at this summer’s Wallingford Carnival, a good number of visitors to chat to and some recruits for Draughtbusters.

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.
Our goals locally 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

 

We recently celebrated our 20th anniversary with a yummy cake!  Take a look round this site to see some of our  amazing  achievements  over the years.

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
