22 Oxford PhD students in Environmental Research visited the Cotswolds last week and heard about local issues from: a model farmer, an educator for a environmental charity on woodlands and a local activist group against pollution of the river. They also experienced citizen science in testing the Evenlode river for the European project Drinkable rivers.
Two days later Anne Miller and Saskia Visser offered the students a workshop on establishing their own connections outside Academia. That lead to ideas about reaching out to a wide range of organisations. From agricultural robotics developers to the angling society, from environmental campaigning organisations to specific trade unions.
