Winchester Action on Climate Change (WinACC) works to cut the carbon footprint of Winchester district, creating lower energy bills, healthier lifestyles and stronger communities. We are local residents, businesses and policy-makers, working together to tread more lightly on the planet.
WinACC helps people save energy in their homes and businesses, save money and keep warm in winter. We press for better public transport, we support sustainable renewable energy, large and small, and we work closely with the local councils to support the emerging low carbon economy.
Together, we can create a better future.
There are lots of ways to get involved, coming to an open meeting, volunteering to help at a single event, starting a Cool Communities group and more. Find out more here.
We meet on Saturday mornings on alternate months at 10.00 for 10.30-12.00 at St Lawrence Parish Room, Winchester, SO23 9LH. In the months between, we meet on Tuesday evenings (joint with Friends of the Earth Winchester) at 7.15 for 7.30-9.15, Venues vary so check the events calendar.
We hold other events too. See the events calendar for dates and topics for all our meetings.
As well as getting involved, why not sign the WinACC pledge and become a member of Winchester Action on Climate Change Limited?
WinACC action groups engage people on topics they feel strongly about, to contribute to achieving WinACC's priorities.
Local climate change groups across the district are always keen to hear from anyone in their area.
WinACC is a registered charity which relies on donations from individuals, organisations and charitable trusts.
If you can, please make a donation to help support our work.
