  • report about the activists' learning and action planning day on 28 June
  • next steps for collaboration (joint stunts, sharing tools, surveys, etc)
  • HampshireCAN has been invited to be an official supporter of clean air day so we should decide if we want to.

2. Influencing Hampshire County Council commission of inquiry to set out a vision to 2050 -  what we could contribute collectively?

                -The % of homes off the gas grid varies from 16% in Eastleigh to 39% in Winchester – across Hampshire  the rural  average is circa 33%. What can we do to raise awareness to change from oil and LPG? Further information https://www.nongasmap.org.uk/search?q=GU341qr"
