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.

BSFG's February 2021 Newsletter (#29) is now available on the website. BSFG President Peter Holmes reminds us that 'Climate Change has not disappeared under a Covid Blanket' and provides an informative update on the Climate Emergency Series he is attending in Melbourne. Electronic Vehicles feature in two articles - 'The EV Revolution may just be Sooner Than You Think' by Peter Holmes and 'Does an EV suit your needs? by Ian Herbert. Ian also challenges us to consider whether we 'Are part of the One Percent?' while Peter Maddock encourages us to reflect on 'Societal Transformation required to Stay Below 1.5 degrees Centigrade'.
