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 September Newsletter (#25) is now available! Peter Holmes, in a passionate' President's Message, emphasises the urgent and continuing need for both individual advocacy/lobbying and support for the organisations devoting considerable energy to overcome political brick walls (or, more bluntly, plain stupidity and greed) in the fight to counter climate change. Also included - Callum Morrison's 'Fifty Years of Playing with Pipes' about his interest in hydrology; a thought provoking article on 'Emissions Levels' by Ian Herbert; a range of stimulating contributions by Peter Maddock - 'Legacy', 'Low Carbon and Loving It', 'Carbon Footprint', '2040, MiniGrids and RedGrid', and 'Another Long Walk for Climate Action' - and a report from Kathryn McQualter from BSFG's Local Food Network Action Group. The deadline for the September Newsletter is Sunday 24th November
Benalla Sustainable Future Group has a number of action groups looking at different aspects of Environmental Sustainability which may interest you. Perhaps you are interested in finding out about BSFG's Renewable Energy Benalla action group, or in initiating a group yourself?
Benalla Sustainable Future Group encourages anyone interested in climate change issues and a more sustainable lifestyle to subscribe to our mailing list, become a member of our group & participate in our activities.
