Do you care about Havant’s environment and impact on the climate emergency?
Join us on our 7pm Zoom calls every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month! Or for our open meetings each month – usually on the second Wednesday on Zoom

In December, we have a different meeting, aimed at local groups, as part of the United for Warm Homes Campaign.

The energy crisis is hitting us all, particularly those on low incomes or in poor housing.  It is sometimes very difficult to find out how to cut energy usage or where to go for help.  So Havant Climate Alliance and Havant Friends of the Earth are organising a meeting so that different community groups and organisations can come together to share information.  It will be an opportunity to discuss the key problems facing each organisation and to discuss how we could tackle them together.

Our meeting will be on Tuesday 13 December at 2.00 pm in the Hurstwood Room at Havant Borough Council Plaza.  This will be hosted by Cllr Elizabeth Lloyd who’s Cabinet Lead for: Local Plan, Climate Change & the Environment inc. Water Quality. We also have Tyler Breeze from Portsmouth talking on the Warm Homes scheme and there will be opportunities for each organisation to introduce themselves and briefly outline the issues facing them, together with a chance to share ideas over a cup of tea.  The meeting will finish by 4.00pm.

If you’d like more information do get back to me at havclimate@gmail.com or ring me on 07752427408

We hope this will be the first step in building a local hub in the Friends of the Earth campaign United for Warm Homes https://www.unitedforwarmhomes.uk.  The goals are to persuade the government to fund:

  • Urgent additional financial support to keep people warm.
  • A nationwide insulation programme.
  • Permanent fixes to our failed energy system. 

However, the main point of this meeting is to network and share.

If you’d like to speak, do get back to us at havclimate@gmail.com

We meet every 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, on Zoom, as our core working group.
Contact havclimate@gmail.com for details. And there are more public meetings on the second Wednesday of each month. Our Janurary meeting (11th Jan) will be about the Warm Homs scheme.
