Remembering Nicky Chambers 26 Feb 2024 (GreenTEA) It is with great sadness that we mark the death of Nicky Chambers on 19th February, far too soon at the age of only 57.

She was a pioneering entrepreneur, leading in carbon and ecological footprinting and she inspired so many in tackling the climate and biodiversity crises.

In Eynsham she encouraged us to campaign for new development to be the best it could be, by sitting lightly on the planet. She said ‘if you can’t do it in Oxfordshire where can you?’ She instigated the revival of EPIC and used her extensive contacts to put together an ‘inspiration panel’ to demand the innovative kind of development we need and supported us in planning a zero carbon energy system. It was so fitting that the success of the Salt Cross net zero legal action came within hours of her death. She was also instrumental in setting up Eynsham's wonderful Nature Recovery Network and you can read their tribute and donate in her memory here.

She carried her expertise lightly, was endlessly encouraging and as Barbara Hammond CEO of the Low Carbon Hub said, ‘she was a total bundle of positive energy and touched so many, many people for good.’

Thank you for the inspiration Nicky.
