Agenda 21

The whole point of Agenda 21 moorings is that people can live an alternative low impact life style. No one lives on this boat it is a shed, no really a shed, just storage, and as such is nothing to do with Agenda 21. I know the owner and he lives in a house. In fact many of the boats down here on the A21 moorings have little to do with low impact living and more to do with making a profit. A sort of low impact capitalism.$RA7DIJXAgenda 21 is an action plan of the United Nations (UN) related to sustainable development and was an outcome of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992. It is a comprehensive blueprint of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the UN, governments, and major groups in every area in which humans directly affect the environment.

not to mention that a number of the boats impact on the local environment by the shed contents overspilling onto the tow path, including some items that even the council bin men would be loathed to take away.

We came past this lot last year after leaving the Thames, never again, Dukes Cut from now on.

But the point is you did it. Had you not you would never have known what it was like. There is no danger down there it just looks a bit scruffy, but it is part of the tapestry of the canals. By coming out or going in at Dukes you miss two very goog eateries. The Plough at Wolvercote and The Anchor at Aristotle Lane are both excellent.

Is the smelly one with all the cats on it part of the UNs 1992 action plan as well? No wonder boaters use Dukes cut, the whole area of towpath from wolvercote down to bridge 239 needs a good clear up, it gives a very bad impression on the approach to our beautiful city. Because boaters are avoiding it they miss out on good pubs and the pubs are missing out on much needed trade.

Many thanks to you for sharing all these wonderful threads.
In addition, the ideal travel along with medical insurance strategy can often
relieve those issues that come with traveling abroad.
Some sort of medical emergency can soon become too expensive and that's absolute
to quickly impose a financial stress on the family finances.
Having in place the ideal travel insurance
package deal prior to leaving is worth the time and effort.

Thanks a lot
