Community Assembly on Climate Action in Southampton

Start: Saturday, December 09, 2023 3:00 PM

End: Saturday, December 09, 2023 5:00 PM

Please join our Community Assembly on Climate Action in Southampton.

The Art House will be providing FREE SNACKS and refreshments for attendees.
Bus fares can be covered*

This event will be a chance to meet other members of your community and discuss what environmental issues in Southampton we care about, what changes need to be made, and how we as a community can work together to make these changes happen.

The outcomes of these discussions will be used to help Southampton Climate Action Network and its member organisations plan future actions and campaigns. We also hope the event will empower attendees to take part in climate action themselves in the future.

These discussions will be facilitated to make sure that everybody gets a chance to speak, because we recognise that the loudest voices aren’t always the wisest and that many great ideas can be missed by not listening to everybody.

This event is open to everybody in Southampton who cares about the environment. However, intolerance will not be tolerated. If you have any questions, please email

*To receive a reimbursement on your bus passes, please book a ticket on and select that you would like your bus travel reimbursed. Most people use the bus by tapping their card, so we don't need to see a receipt for the £4 day bus pass on a card. If you expect your travel to cost more than £4, please fill in the "any other comments" box with information and we will email you as soon as we're able to confirm whether or not we can afford to reimburse this travel
