Location: The Innovation Centre, Basing View, Basingstoke, Hampshire RG21 4HG
This 6-monthly meeting of the Hampshire Climate Action Network for anyone who is active in their community on climate change.
These get-togethers are aimed at anyone who is active in their community and influences or works with other people on climate change. They are a chance to share experiences and ideas. Followed by bring-and-share lunch.
Hampshire County Council wants to hear our views on the energy priorities for the community in our areas. They are interested in helping people cut their energy use and their bills, as well as community renewables. This is a brilliant opportunity, so we hope every area will be represented.
The programme will be:
9.30 Refreshments and networking
10.00 Welcome and introductions
10.10 Review agenda, check if there are other key topics to include
10.15 Groups discussions of topic(s)
10.50 Groups discussions of topic(s)
11.35 Key energy issues in our communities – discussion with HCC
12.10 Next steps and action planning
12.30 END followed by bring-and-share lunch.
Topics suggested so far are:
1) influencing politicians – local and national
2) ‘Social norms’ i.e. how can we change what people consider to be ‘normal behaviour’. E.g. not flying on holiday, cycling/walking/taking public transport to work or school, wearing a sweater or thermal underwear when your home gets cool, etc.
3) Air quality
