WinACC (Winchester Action on Climate Change) and Winchester Friends of the Earth are holding an open event on 28 November to consider how we can make Winchester’s air cleaner, greener and safer.

At the end of the meeting “Movement in Winchester: learning from Oxford” on 13 June 2017, people were asked for the most important lessons they would to take forward into discussions about how to make it easier and more pleasant to move round Winchester. These are their lessons:
