Local Actions Have Global Consequences
The Benalla Sustainable Future Group was established in 2010 by Benalla & District residents concerned about environmental sustainability and the lack of action on climate change both locally & nationally. By coming together we can work towards a more sustainable future & a cleaner planet.
Renewable Energy Benalla, BSFG and the Community Energy Retailer Project held a Community Energy Forum at BPACC on Friday 3rd August. if you missed the forum, you can find out about the role of a community energy retailer on the Community Energy Retailer Project website.
The Windows, Hot Water and Heating & Cooling workshop being offered by REB's 'Reduce 1/3' efficiency action group is being held on Wednesday September 26 from 7.00pm-9.00pm at the Gliding Club.
REB is keen to share information about utility scale proposals directed towards its 'Switch 1/3' goal such as the Lightsource BP Urbis proposed solar installation, the Overland Sun Farming and the 85MW AC FRV Services' Solar Farm Project in nearby Glenrowan and Winton.
BSFG's June (quarterly) newsletter (#21) is now online - articles include 'Federal Budget Ignores Climate Change' by John Lloyd; 'Per Capita Greenhouse Emissions for a Safe Climate' by Peter Maddock and extracts from a range of articles including 'NEG's 2030 targets already exceeded' (Climate Council) and 'Renewables not to blame for rising power costs' (SMH).

At our next BSFG meeting...
Screening at our next general meeting on Thursday 25 October, the documentary 'Takayna 2018' unpacks the complexities of modern conservation and challenges us to consider the importance of our last wild places. We are hoping the film will lead to a discussion of how we can save our environment from further degradation when our economy is geared to economic growth
