Hampshire Climate Action Network is an informal way for local groups to share ideas and collaborate. Meetings take place every six months and are open to people active on climate change in their community.  "Hampshire" includes the county and also Southampton and Portsmouth.

These meetings are for anyone who is active influencing their community on climate change and the agenda is for you to decide.  
AGENDA, to be confirmed on the day depending on who is there:
  1. Air pollution /Clean Air / BREATHE - what is happening everywhere, sharing news, ideas and lessons learnt, opportunities for co-ordinating action. (Fareham and Gosport FoE write: "People may like to know about the Clean Air competition we ran in local primary and junior schools last year, which has led to banners being displayed in one of the AQMAs in Fareham: ... 
  2. Retrofitting in Hampshire - Energy Alton write: " Energy Alton works hard on home energy improvements – free surveys and advice. Nationally and locally we need to have better intelligence on the task ahead. No of homes with solid walls. % of homes without insulation, with inefficient boilers, off the gas grid, not using LEDS, not aware of annual energy consumption, and so on. Could we run some  sort of survey across Hampshire to find this information. Is it already available and we don’t know it? the purpose would be to push LAs to invest, encourage business to see the market and help community groups to target their efforts."

Directions to venue:

Freemantle URC is less than 1 mile from Southampton station. leave the station through THE NORTH EXIT (not the South side. Google maps doesn’t understand that there are two exits from the station) then turn left and go about 200 yards under a road bridge and then turn right up a steep cycle/walk way.  That makes it 10-15 minutes' walk.  There are also lots of buses.
