What Future Oxford is doing
Future Oxford is encouraging citizens to take vote in the 2018 municipal elections as part of its goal to increase voter turn-out in all elections (see "Community" in the Future Oxford Community Sustainability Plan). Watch for our #LocalVotesMatter social media campaign.
In October, Future Oxford hosted all-candidates forums for secondary school students in Woodstock, Ingersoll and Tillsonburg to allow our youth to hear first-hand from municipal and school board candidates. The forums were intended to promote democratic engagement among youth as part of our path towards building a more sustainable future.
