Sustainable Island

I live on the very small Osney Island on the River Thames and last night I went to a meeting of the Osney Sustainable Island Group (OSIG). We’d like to take advantage of our location and set up a “micro-hydro” station to produce electricity. But we’re only at the beginning: we need to find funds just for a full feasibility study even before we can begin to design the project, much less start building it.

In fact, the goal is more ambitious: we want to become the world’s first sustainable island. Or, to put it in more familiar terms: think globally, act locally!
