FRIENDS of the Earth campaigners in Oxford are inviting people to attend an open day to set the agenda for campaigning over the next 12 months.

The event will take place on Saturday, February 22 at the Environmental Change Institute on South Parks Road from 1pm to 4.30pm.

The group has been active in the city for over 40 years and its campaigns mainly focus on tackling climate change, reducing air and plastic pollution, protecting nature, and include transport and planning issues.
