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.

Thank you to members who responded to the recent Newsletter Survey. There is clearly interest from members in continuing with the Newsletter. Members are invited to contribute articles of about 200 words about an environmentally themed topic. Perhaps something you are personally interested in including actions you are taking to live more sustainably. Your thoughts about major environmental issues which are important to you. Are we dealing with these issues adequately? Politics gives plenty of scope to comment on environmental issues. The deadline for the next Newsletter is Sunday February 17th. Submit articles to email@example.com .
