Hampshire Climate Action Network is an informal way for local groups to share ideas and collaborate. Meetings take place every six months and are open to people active on climate change in their community.  "Hampshire" includes the county and also Southampton and Portsmouth.

These meetings are for anyone who is active influencing their community on climate change and the agenda is for you to decide.  

AGENDA so far:

  1. Air pollution - sharing news and ideas, co-ordinating action. 
  2. the future structure of HampshireCAN including these questions:
    • Should we have a steering group?
    • Do we want email groups for special interests
    • Organising meetings / chairing
    • HCAN Facebook page

What else do you want to add? Please email by 1 March  HCAN@winacc.org.uk.

Some possibilities:

1. Hampshire County Council commission of inquiry to set out a vision to 2050. Can we contribute collectively? 

2. More on what we can do to stimulate renewable projects (see report from Hampshire Renewable Energy Coop  Renewable_Energy_Production_in_Hampshire)

3. M3 LEP economic  strategy (neither climate change nor renewables figured in their plans (if yet published - consultation ended Dec 2017)

Hampshire Climate Action Network last met on  14 October 2017 - see notes.

Directions to venue:

Freemantle URC is less than 1 mile from Southampton station. leave the station through THE NORTH EXIT (not the South side. Google maps doesn’t understand that there are two exits from the station) then turn left and go about 200 yards under a road bridge and then turn right up a steep cycle/walk way.  That makes it 10-15 minutes' walk.  There are also lots of buses.
