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.

On alternate months, the  Built Environment and Transport Action Groups have joint meetings to influence the built environment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions both direct and indirect. They work with the City of Winchester Trust in the Winchester 2020 Group. Contact BEG@winacc.org.uk.

The Waste action group aims to promote the ethos of Prevent, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover and Dispose.

This workshop to share best practice has been postponed till October - exact date to follow.
Led by Rachel Platt, it will look at how can we all make sure that everyone is welcome and able to be involved in the work of WinACC. For example: are we fully prepared to welcome people in wheelchairs to our meetings? Or people with visual or hearing impairments? 

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.

Traffic congestion was the biggest challenge identified by last year's conference Winchester: Thinking Ahead. 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."

Join us on Tuesday 13 June 7.30-9.15pm (7.15pm for tea/coffee) at Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry St, Winchester SO23 8SB. Free, with a collection to cover expenses. 

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.

Our Science and Technology Advisory Panel makes sure that all WinACC's work is based on up-to-date and robust scientific and technical evidence.  Click here for more, or contact stap@winacc.org.uk.

Why would you even think about making your working place "greener"?

Surely that's for the "tree hugging" community and not for a serious business like yours?

Come to the Sustrainable Business Network's afternoon event at Marwell Zoo (a very green working place) and hear how companies have had positive benefits including team work, morale, Corporate Social Responsibility, less absenteeism and good PR. Plus a post-election legal update from their resident lawyer.
