Traffic congestion was the biggest challenge identified by last year's conference Winchester: Thinking Ahead. As the conference report said, "Winchester will inevitably change – to manage it, we need to address movement – i.e. how people move about the city, including walking, cycling, public transport, traffic congestion as well as cars and other vehicles."

At the Hat Fair this year, WinACC will run our pollution poll to ask people what they want done about air pollution in Winchester. We ran this twice last year - see the findings.

The Transport Action Group aims to cut emissions from transport, especially the private car and flying. We lobby for better public transport, more attention to walking and cycling, and to reduce the adverse effects of traffic in the city. Contact transport@winacc.org.uk.

The Waste action group aims to promote the ethos of

  • Prevent
  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Recycle
  • Recover
  • Dispose

Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) is sometimes viewed as a discipline that only large companies can afford to do. SME businesses can then feel sidelined when competitive sales tenders/PQQs require them to outline their programmes, they believe (wrongly) they can’t do it.

The Food action group aims to promote community food growing and stop food being wasted.

For more information contact food@winacc.org.uk.

The chair is Clare Shorter.

WinACC Community Engagement Group supports WinACC's activities in engaging with people and communities to cut their carbon footprint and enjoy the benefits of lower carbon living.

The Renewable Energy action group promotes increased use of renewable energy in Winchester district by raising awareness influencing local policies and promoting locally based, larger scale renewable energy generation schemes.

Come and join the Sustainable Business Network's visit to a local farm where up to 90% of the energy is generated from 3 wind turbines.

Derek, the Kirton Farm owner, will show visitors around the turbines and explain how the project was started, the legalities, the grid connection and much more.
