This event is free and open to all. No booking required.

This year's Basingstoke Green Week is even bigger! With a week full of activities, workshops, talks and film viewings, see full list of events and activities.

21 September 2014 is a Global Day of Action. WinACC supporters will be travelling on the 11.23 train to London together. if you want to join us, be on the platform at 11.20 at the end furthest from the entrance. Marches in Bournemouth and Chichester too.

Technical innovation alone will not achieve carbon reduction targets. Can community initiatives create behaviour change by establishing pro-environmental norms, challenging habits and increasing people’s confidence to act?
