Tuesday, 19 January 2016 - 7:30pm to 9:15pm

The Paris Climate Conference was just the start. How do we keep up the momentum? 

WinACC trustee Rachel Platt will describe what it was like being in Paris, WinACC's Chair Tony Stoller will give a brief overview of what the Paris Climate Agreement did - and didn't - cover, and what it means for action locally, nationally and globally. Plenty of time to decide what more we can do locally to make sure that we do our share to keep global warming under 2 degrees. We hope that people will commit themselves to realistic actions to influence politicians, press, media and local people:

  • get something off to the local paper whenever there's an opening to highlight climate change
  • keep climate change high on the agenda of local MPs
  • make global warming a hot topic in the local Council election in May
  • join with your neighbours in a Cool Communities eco-group
  • and many more ideas to choose from.

Free, all welcome. Come at 7.15 for free coffee or tea and networking. Pay bar open.

The Winchester Club is our new venue, in the Cattlemarket car park on the corner of Worthy Road and Andover Road, where the car boot sale happens. 

These regular, open joint meetings between WinACC and Friends of the Earth are an ideal way for newcomers to meet people and find out about what's going on in Winchester on climate change and environmental issues. We aim to be friendly, welcoming and lively, and to thrash out our view on important policy issues at each meeting.
