Sustainable Didcot is a community action group for Didcot residents with a shared interest in the environment, living sustainably and raising awareness of climate change.

We believe that through positive action we, as a community, can reduce Didcot’s impact on this global threat.

The group follows the 1987 UN’s Brundtland Commission definition of Sustainability:

“Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.

We are part of the Oxfordshire Community Action Group network.

UPCOMING EVENTS

How to get involved

Green Drinks

A chance for an informal chat to meet other environmentally minded locals. For 2023, Green Drinks are running on the first Wednesday of the month from 7.30pm in the Makespace Area of the Soha Building.

Planning Meeting

Everyone is welcome, but if you want more of a chance to chat, and find out what we do and how you could get involved, Green Drinks would also be a good place to start (see the calendar for dates).

There are a number of other ways to get involved, here is just a taste:

    1. Turn up at our events such as freecycles, and repair cafes

    2. Come gardening with us at our community allotment, we meet monthly and if you're very keen you can have access to the site to garden outside our monthly sessions as the allotment needs plenty of watering and weeding

    3. Help out at our events - even an hour spent at our freecycle stall, fixing things at our repair cafe, hosting the repair cafe and making sure it is run well helps. We also regularly need people to help move our equipment to and from events.

    4. Provide help in other ways - cakes for our repair cafes, help publicising what we do, or linking us to other community groups. We're especially looking for community groups interested in gardening at our allotment or for future projects on upcycling.

    5. Sit on our committee (we elect new members in June) - our committee consists of a chair, a secretary, a treasurer and a number of leads for each of our key projects.
