Winchester Action on Climate Change invites you to back BREATHE, for better air, transport, health and environment.

Come to the launch of BREATHE on Saturday, 1 April 2017 at 10:30am to 12:00 at St Lawrence Parish Room, Colebrook St, Winchester, SO23 9LH. All welcome.

At the meeting you choose the first three BREATHE calls for action, collect a poster for your window, materials for your neighbours, and plan your own BREATHE action.

What is BREATHE?

ALFI (the Alton Local Food Initiative) and Energy Alton will be showing the film “Project Wild Thing”, followed by an informal discussion, at 7.30 pm in Alton Maltings Centre.  Produced by The Wild Network, this film is helping to lead a movement which encourages children to get outside and enjoy nature.  Free event, donations welcome.

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.

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

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.

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.

Transition Southampton started in 2008 and has achieved a huge amount in that time. It has been run by a small group of ever-changing individuals, all committed to the goals and values of sustainable living. This year, they find themselves without enough core members to carry on. They need to look at their own sustainability.

WinACC will be the charity collecting the stall holders' fees at the Cattle Market car boot sale (on the corner of Andover Road and Worthy Lane, Winchester SO23 7AB) on Sunday 30 April.

So if you are thinking of having car boot sale this spring, please do it then.

We will also have a stall. So if you aren't, please give us your stuff for us to sell. Email events@winacc.org.uk or phone the office on 01962 827083 if you have items to donate.
