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.
Events will be updated as decisions are made about them being held due to Covid-19.

BSFG's December Newsletter (#26) is available on line. Peter Holmes reflects on Australia's lack of leadership on climate change in his President's Message, declaring ''The time for political argy-bargy is over. All parties must come to their senses and show some statesmanship in this crisis". Ian Herbert contributes 'Some Good News for Christmas' on the recent announcement by Lily D'Ambrosio on Protecting Victoria's Forests and Threatened Species and its meaning for the Strathbogie Forest. Also from Ian, 'The Difference Between Large Numbers', an excellent educational article written to develop understanding of how small differences in numbers relating to climate change can lead to tipping points and make big difference to the planet. Peter Maddock encourages us to consider 'Limits to Growth' and more. A truly inspirational edition!
