University communities can have a huge impact on the localised drivers of climate change, but how can they take proactive steps to mitigate them?

Whether it be through action research, resource efficiency or student-led action, this workshop will help staff, academics and students alike create positive change, both on and off campus. This session drew on the latest innovations from University of Oxford, Brookes University resource efficiency specialists Environmental Information Exchange and Europe’s largest localised grassroots climate action network, the Community Action Groups (CAG) Project.
