Abingdon Carbon Cutters

United Kingdom

We work to reduce the carbon footprint of the town in response to climate change and to prepare for the challenge of ‘peak oil’. Current initiatives include a regular stall at our Local Excellence markets, weekly cookery classes in a Family Centre and in a primary school, an outdoor learning environment at the primary school,  bee-friendly flower beds in the local park, and well-advanced plans for a hydro-electric scheme on the River Thames (now set up as a separate organisation, Abingdon Hydro). We have attracted funding for a planned wind turbine demonstration project next year.
