We are in the critical decade that Climate Scientists constantly are telling us is our last opportunity to curtail runaway climate change.
BSFG has, for the past approximately 13 years, been lobbying our local Council and State and Federal politicians to take urgent action on climate. We have set up Action Groups to lead the way towards more sustainable ways of living, conducted information sessions, shown films, co-sponsored the Swanpool Environmental Film Festival each year it has run, raised funds to install solar systems on 2 local kindergartens, and organised last year’s climate science talks and petition to Council to declare a Climate Emergency.
These are just some of the ways in which this dedicated group of people have worked to try to improve the future prospects for our community.
We now need your input and help more than ever!!
Many of us are beyond the age of 70, and the goal of combating climate change is too important to ignore. We will keep doing whatever we can, but we also need your help and input.
On Thursday 31st March (7pm) and Tuesday 12th April (7 pm), at the Uniting Church in Carrier St, we are conducting a review of BSFG, its past achievements, and its plans for the next 5-10 years. Cath Botta will be leading this review, and we urge all of our members and supporters to participate by either attending these meetings, or completing the on-line survey at
Please indicate your attendance by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We also urge supporters to consider becoming a financial member of BSFG ($25 per household/year), and especially younger people to offer to join the committee at our AGM in May.
Please give these requests your serious attention. For all of us concerned about the future for our descendants, we need a strong, viable and active group, agitating for climate action – we simply cannot allow complacency, greed or ignorance to triumph over action on climate.
