On National Clean Air Day, WinACC is working with partners to create opportunities for people to

  • get involved
  • learn more about the relationship between clean air and the health of people and the planet
  • make your views known

This event will include:

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.   

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

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.

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.

After two days of polling at the Winchester Cathedral Harvest weekend on 1 and 2 October, 2017, organised by the Diocesan Envirment Committee, we can now reveal the combined results of five days of pollution polls in one year (October 2016, November 2016, July 2017, Sep 2017, Oct 2017).

Highlights of Hampshire Climate Action Network 6 May 2017. Next meeting 14 October 9.30-1.00 in Basingstoke.

Burning fossil fuel for transport produces greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change and produce air pollution that is directly harmful to health.

Poor air quality in Winchester affects us all.
