Event description
We are combining our AGM with a chance to meet the our amazing local environmental activists, campaigners and champions

About this event

Southampton has a long history of environmental activism but many who live here don’t know the stories of the people involved. We have many Greenham common women living in our city and there is a strong connection to all that happened at Twyford Down. We have The Environment Centre in the city, many local groups who have campaigned to save and care for our green spaces and our waterways, and, more recently, a policy changing Clean Air Campaign and a group campaigning to save trees in Marhill Copse. This is just a snapshot of things that have and are happening in our city.

At our AGM you can meet and chat to people who:

  • Volunteer and lead repair cafes
  • Campaign to make Southampton a National Park City
  • Support community business and help localise the economy
  • Travelled to Europe by rail and are an eco home owner
  • Designed a rat proof composting bin
  • Provide advice on green gardening
  • Help unleash the power of imagination to create the future we want
  • Run a social group which allows people to make and mend

There will be 3 timeslots of 20 minutes where a group of 6 can meet the local activists and campaigners, hear their stories, and ask questions. You will be able to book the timeslots when you arrive at 7pm.

Whether you are interested in learning about the environment and what you can do to make a difference or are already involved in environmental work, come and meet others who are just as passionate, or to gain some inspiration for a project of your own!
