Winchester Action on Climate Change (WinACC) works to cut the carbon footprint of Winchester district, creating lower energy bills, healthier lifestyles and stronger communities. We are local residents, businesses and policy-makers, working together to tread more lightly on the planet. 

WinACC helps people save energy in their homes and businesses, save money and keep warm in winter. We press for better public transport, we support sustainable renewable energy, large and small, and we work closely with the local councils to support the emerging low carbon economy.

Together, we can create a better future. 

How to get involved

There are lots of ways to get involved,  coming to an open meeting, volunteering to help at a single event, starting a Cool Communities group and more. Find out more here.


We meet four times a year on Saturday mornings at 10.00 for 10.30-12.00 at St Lawrence Parish Room, Winchester, SO23 9LH.  These meetings focus on action.

We meet four times a year on Tuesday evenings jointly with Friends of the Earth Winchester at 7.15 for 7.30-9.15 at various central Winchester locations. These meetings focus on important issues and campaigns.

We hold other events too. Everyone is welcome to all our open meetings. See the events calendar for dates and topics for all our meetings.
