This June is Hampshire Clean Air Month. Events and activities are being planned across the county by local climate change campaigners under the heading Hampshire BREATHE. 

It's the UK's first ever National Clean Air Day on 15 June, to tell people about air pollution and take action to make the air cleaner and healthier for everyone.

Air pollution is putting our health and our environment at risk. The air quality in the UK is so bad that the costs to our society are on a par with those from smoking and obesity, according to the Parliamentary Environmental Audit Committee (1).

Two linked public events to share ideas and test consensus on how to make it easier and more pleasant to move round Winchester town. Tuesday 13 June 7.30: Learning from Oxford; Saturday 1 July 10.30: Applying the lessons.

“Make climate change an issue in the coming election” is the message to all local voters.

June 2017

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?
