Oscar Idle for Donnington and Iffley Fields & St. Mary's
I have been heavily involved with environmental activism for several years, including Extinction Rebellion and Stop HS2. I have had particular experience in media strategy over this time.
Why I am standing
As a young person, I feel that I have a lot at stake in the planet's future. This is part of the reason why I will do everything I can to protect nature and biodiversity, and help everyone along through a rapid green transition involving more cycling and public transport, energy efficient homes, and the creation of green jobs.
I will support social and affordable housing projects, and campaign for all new builds to have net zero carbon emissions.
How I will campaign
If canvassing will be possible this year, I will be going door to door every day of the year to really listen to people and understand their concerns.
Due to COVID-19, it is likely that we will need to win with an online campaign. Due to my experience with media strategy, and due to my strong connections to the community, I am in a prime position to campaign through social media, and to really engage with people.
With the energy, drive and passion behind my campaign, I will be able to mobilise people who have never voted before, and particularly young people, to turn out in the masses come May.
Skills and time commitment
I will be campaigning every day of the week, whether online or door to door. If elected to both city and county council, I will dedicate myself full time to my role as a councillor.
