Build Back Fairer: new series of events

Build Back Fairer -- a new series of events addressing inequalities of access to Oxfordshire's public space.

Active Oxfordshire is delighted to launch a new series of events to bring multi-sector partners together and consider how we might address inequalities of access to our streets, parks and other public spaces to shape Oxfordshire as a happier and healthier place.

About the Build Back Fairer series

Access to public spaces has long been recognised to produce positive health, environmental, economic, and social outcomes for residents who can access them.

The COVID-19 pandemic made these benefits increasingly obvious, leading to increased use of our streets, parks, and other open spaces – even repurposing car parks – as places for people to gather, exercise, socialise and access services.

There has been a call to 'Build Back Better', but as with the unequal impact of Covid-19 on widening social, economic, environmental and health inequalities, Active Oxfordshire, Oxfordshire Liveable Streets, and other local partners are launching a 'Build Back Fairer' series of events which will take place over the next six months.

(The Build Back Fairer series is part of Active Oxfordshire's commitment to a Healthy Place Shaping approach – for more information on Healthy Place Shaping in Oxfordshire click here)
