From 26th July to 1st August 2020, CoHSAT organised a popup experience in an empty shop in the centre of Oxford.
The aim was to spark discussion for a re-imagined Oxford, sharing our ideas for better public realm, more cycling provision and pedestrianisation. More specifically, we want to see an ambitious approach to tackling congestion and improving public transport and walking and cycling in Oxford.
The popup shop was a great success. We had about 360 visitors overall, including several councillors, plus masses of feedback and approximately 60 postcards with written support to send directly to councillors. Plus lots of activity on social media and featured in local newspapers, radio stations and TV news.
Here is our short (5 minute) film capturing perspectives from the people of Oxford – those who visited the pop-up, those who were out shopping, those who were walking by.
They are real views and do not necessarily reflect the views of CoHSAT members. They do give an insight into what the people of Oxford think about active travel.
