Could you help us inspire sustainable living across Winchester District?

WinACC works to lower the carbon footprint of Winchester District by inspiring sustainable living. Our vision is for the district to have zero greenhouse gas emissions and to be a beacon for action on climate change. Can you help us realise this vision by becoming a WinACC Trustee?

Gayzer Frackman has offered his thanks for the tremendous support which has enabled him and his team to reach an important stage in their legal challenge of fracking.

Mr Frackman adds:

Incredible Edible Winchester and Ruth Kirkby, the Community Champion for Winchester Tesco Extra, planted apple and plum trees at Winnall Primary School on 20 April, ably assisted by some of the pupils.

An introduction to the ethics and principles of permaculture led by WinACC Executive Director and Permaculture Ambassador Tom Brenan.

The joint committee report from an unprecedented four-way inquiry calls for a new Clean Air Act, a clean air fund financed by the transport industry, a national air quality support programme for councils, and for the Government to require manufacturers to end the sale of conventional petrol and diesel cars earlier than the current 2040 target.   

The Campaign for Better Transport (CBT) are petitioning the Government for recent funding announced on roads to be available to spend on all roads, not just major roads. 

WinACC replied to the House of Commons four Select Committees' consultation on air quality to say that the consultation paper set out the seriousness and urgency of the problem very clearly, but failed to set measures and a timetable to act.

Everyone at WinACC has been deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Robert Hutchison in late September.

More than 35 people participated at WinACC’s open meeting on 12 September, which examined how we can keep climate change at the top of the agenda at a time when Brexit negotiations are consuming the energy and capacity of government and policy-makers.

Green House, the environmental think tank, has recently published an essay by Robert Hutchison, WinACC's founder, entitled "This Moment: The Emergency, The Opportunity".
