Winchester City Council, Hampshire County Council, town and parish councils
In January 2016, in the wake of the Paris Climate Conference, Winchester City Council approved a set of Twelve Actions for a Lower Carbon Winchester which set out how it will use its influence to encourage further reduction of the District’s carbon footprint.
To keep global warming below 2 degrees, we need action locally as well as globally.
Climate change is too important to be a party political issue. We must make the planet safer for future generations and for all life on earth - animal, plant and human.
