Event – Climate Emergency Network General Meeting – Sunday 25 May: 11.45am-5pm
Posted in Events by Ferne Edwards on May 16th, 2008
The newly formed Climate Emergency Network that links groups and individuals working on the declaration of climate and sustainability emergency and on the achievement of a safe climate will be holding its second workshop on 25th May at Abbotsford Convent, 1 St Heliers St Abbotsford. Melway 44 G5.
The Climate Emergency Network (CEN) is a not-for-profit, non-politically-aligned network of community organisations that are campaigning for all governments to recognise and declare a state of climate and sustainability emergency in order to ensure we have a safe climate future for all people, all species, and all generations. The network aims to bring together the many Climate Action Groups and community organisations across the nation to work strategically together towards this goal.
The network has been established only 3 months and has over 70 members in Victoria, representing many existing Climate Action Groups. We welcome new people and groups to join the network. The Climate Emergency Network Charter is attached.
Please come along to meet with members of the Network.
Hear how the work of the Network is developing and become involved in jobs and projects needing workers!
View the latest version of the Climate Code Red slide show.
Learn how to train as a presenter of the slide show and Climate Code Red emergency message.
Hear how your Climate Action Group can become involved in a project to meet with your Local Community Leaders.
Hear about plans to meet and discuss the Climate Emergency message with key policy makers and influential members of our society.
(A detailed agenda will be circulated closer to the date)
