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: 

WinACC response to the inadequate Government draft Air Quality Plan "Tackling nitrogen dioxide in our towns and cities: A consultation".

The government finally published its draft Air Quality Plan on 5 May. Friends of the Earth (FoE) say:

"This should have been a Plan that helped people out of dirty diesels in to clean vehicles and cheaper, better, public transport.  Unfortunately for us all – it wasn’t. Far from it."

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.

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

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. 

At the Hat Fair this year, WinACC will run our pollution poll to ask people what they want done about air pollution in Winchester. We ran this twice last year - see the findings.

BREATHE stands for better air, transport, health and environment.

BREATHE isn’t owned by WinACC.  (New to BREATHE? see What is BREATHE?)

We hope other groups will pick it up and run with it.

WinACC’s focus is the climate changing effect of air pollution.  Others can focus on other aspects such as ill-health.

We want to spread the idea.

Please follow these guidelines:

We launched BREATHE for better air, transport, health and environment at our meeting on 1 April 2017. We want the BREATHE name and logo to be taken up by everyone who wants better air, transport, health and environment. We hope you will run your own BREATHE actions.
