Tuesday, 12 July 2016 - 7:30pm to 9:15pm

40,000 people a year die because UK air is polluted.   Come to a meeting on air quality in Winchester, what is being done and what is needed, and help make Winchester cleaner and safer.

See the agenda.

Giles Gooding of Winchester Friends of the Earth will explain why poor air quality is bad for our health and our climate, and about air pollution in Winchester.

David INgram of  Winchester City Council will set out what the Council has done and plans to do. (Winchester City Council publishes reviews and data on air quality in and around the Air Quality Management Area in Winchester Town.  The February 2016 report from Bureau Veritas is now available.)

Then we will all discuss what can be done, and how we can press for speedy and effective action locally.

These 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.

Free, all welcome. Come at 7.15 for coffee or tea and networking.
