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 not an activist group. We simply want to inspire positive behaviour change. We recognise that everyone is on their own journey and we wish to provide education and awareness towards doing the right thing by our planet.

In 2022 we are:

Looking after the trees we planted during 2020 and 2021, nurturing new trees in our Tree Nursery, running workshops to learn sewing and needle felting skills, tackling food waste through the Community Fridge and continuing to encourage less single-use plastic. We are also running - a talk on how to manage your investments in an environmentally friendly way - Thursday 28th July - a big bug hunt at Poulner Lakes - Thursday 4th August - a talk on the art of seed saving - Tuesday 27th September For more details please look at our calendar For more information about how you can help look at our Volunteering Opportunities or come along to one of our monthly meetings

A taste of what we have achieved so far
