The Oxford Green Lungs Research Programme
Speaker: Christopher Gowers
The Oxford Green Lungs Research Programme is an initiative of the Oxford City District Committee of the Council for the Preservation of Rural England Oxfordshire to research the green infrastructure of the city and link that with the green healthcare and education initiatives.
The idea was germinated by a series of lectures on Oxford’s Green Spaces given at St Giles Church Oxford in 2008. A project was first announced on 1 May 2009 at an event hosted by the Friends of Warneford Meadow and an update on progress was presented at a meeting of the Oxford Pedestrians Association held at Oxford Town Hall on 23 March 2010. The first part of the programme is the commissioning of a place-names study for the whole city.
