One Bonkers May Day Tradition That Needs To Stop


May Day has several traditions associated with it, one of which is Oxford people gathering around the Great Tower of Magdalen College at 6am to listen to the choir sing and then proceeding to Magdalen Bridge where they jump off into the River Cherwell – only 2 feet deep! Needless to say there have been many injuries which have resulted in the bridge being closed to the public on May Day. So why do people do something so reckless? Because it has always been done?

Do Nothing

Many things today seem to be done in a particular way because that is how we have always done it, even though we know it is going to hurt us. We have known about climate change and resource depletion for many decades now and yet we still refuse to do things differently. What will be the trigger to start us on a path to reduce our emissions and use fewer resources? If history is anything to go by it will be when things are really in a mess and far too late to start any meaningful mitigation.
