Winchester Action on Climate Change (WinACC) works to cut the carbon footprint of Winchester district. We are local residents, businesses and policy-makers, working together to tread more lightly on the planet. Together, we can create a better future.

“Although we have more clothes, bigger cars, and more bathrooms, we are no happier today than we were 50 years ago” Dr Roz Sunley told over 40 people at the Winchester Action on Climate Change and Friends of the Earth Winchester meeting on Stuff or Happiness? last Tuesday 8 July 2014.
We have UK, European and global targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the proportion of the energy we use that comes from renewable sources. WinACC has developed plans to show how we in Winchester District could do our fair share. This isn't a blue-print. If you don't like our suggestions about how to hit the targets, come and argue for something else - provided that it adds up to our fair share!
Good places to start
The then DECC Minister Greg Barker and local MP Steve Brine came to hear about Cool Communities from people who've been piloting this exciting new programme for WinACC in June 2014.
Our August open meeting will be an informal chance to share stories about what we've all been doing and celebrate our successes.
Followed by a bring and share picnic in Abbey grounds (weather permitting).
Come and join us, for the meeting or the picnic. All welcome. Tea and coffee available from 10.00
