Clean Air Warwickshire

Clean Air Warwickshire was formed to focus on improving air quality in Warwick & Leamington to improve the lives of residents.
Raise everyone’s awareness of air pollution and the damage it does to health and wellbeing so that they support the changes in lifestyles and habits required to improve the quality of our air.
Hold the Town, District and County Councils to their responsibility to monitor air quality and act to improve it.
People to be prioritised over vehicles, walking and cycling made easy and an end to the dependency on cars.
Achieve our vision by making the best use of resources in leading initiatives and events and collaborating with the Councils and other organisations.
Cycleways Kenilworth, Leamington & Warwick
Cycleways is a volunteer group, founded in 1995, campaigning for better cycle provision in the area.
We want cycling as a means of transport for everyone; old and young, the serious club rider through to the weekend leisure rider; Cycleways is open to all irrespective of age, race, gender or sexuality and aims to speak for all!
Cycleways represents cyclists to the Council at County, District and Town level, ensuring that your voice is heard. We work to develop the cycle network and monitor danger-zones around the area and suggest safer junctions.
Cycleways wants a cycle friendly Kenilworth, Leamington Spa and Warwick which will benefit businesses, the environment and public health.
Action 21 is a local volunteer-based charity that aims to reduce the environmental impact of the Leamington and Warwick communities and raise awareness of the benefits of sustainable living.
We do this by promoting the development of sustainability -themed skills, sharing information, and running the Re-Useful Centre — a facility which sells donated manufactured goods, thus saving them from landfill. The income from the sale of these goods is used to support and run sustainability-themed projects.
Action21 was launched as a social enterprise in 1996, in response to Agenda 21 of the 1992 Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit. In June 2010 it acquired charitable status.
