Who are Ringwood Actions for Climate Emergency (RACE)?
- We are a registered charity based in Ringwood, Hampshire, with the aim of bringing people from the Ringwood area together to take actions that help the environment, biodiversity and climate change.
- We are passionate about protecting our local environment.
- We know that we are fortunate to live in such a wonderful part of the country and we want to do everything we can to both protect the area around us and help the rest of the planet.
- We hope that Ringwood can become a great example of how a community can come together to address the challenges of climate change and biodiversity; a community where people feel that they can make a difference themselves and be able to influence others to improve and protect the future environment of our town.
