Our members also took part in the Schools Energy Project, surveying homes with thermal cameras to spot heat loss. Our current projects include the popular Repair Cafe, Bike2Basics (community bike doctor) and Clean Air Southampton (which after successfully highlighting the need to improve air quality in Southampton has helped create new initiatives such as Breathing Spaces (St Denys) and is now supported by Southampton Friends of the Earth
