Burning fossil fuel for transport produces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. Climate change is causing increasing damage to health. Burning fossil fuel also produces air pollution that is directly harmful to health. We must design our towns and our lives so that we aren't forced to rely on polluting private cars.

9 months after Winchester City Council adopted a new five-year Air Quality Action Plan (approved Apr 26, 2017) their lead officer is comng to this meeting with the results of monitorng in 2017 so we can see if air pollution is decreasing. If it's not going down - or not going down fast enough - we can discuss what more the Council should do.

Find out what 1300 people told the Council in our three Pollution Polls in 2016 and 2017.

These joint meetings arranged by WinACC and Friends of the Earth are the ideal way for newcomers to find out more about climate change and environmental issues, and what's going on in Winchester. We aim to be friendly, welcoming and lively, and to thrash out our view on important policy issues at each meeting. 

Free, all welcome. Come at 7.15 for free coffee or tea and networking.
