Free flooding workshop this July

May 27th, 2014

Climate Outreach and Information Network are running a series of free workshops this summer, including an event at the Langdale Hall in Witney on 13 July.

'Can we talk about climate change now?' says COIN's banner over a flooded Oxford residential street.

The workshops will discuss a number of issues arising from flooding, which much of Witney has been historically prone to. These include:

  • Will flooding get worse?
  • Is the weather changing?
  • How is climate change connected?
  • How can we be prepared for future floods?

You can join fellow Witney inhabitants in discussing these issues, and learn how to communicate to others the risks we all face.

Spaces are limited but you can book for free here.
