The next City of Port Phillip Climate Conversations session will be held on Saturday 7 August – this session will be for those proposing New Project ideas.

Since March this year 163 people have attended Climate Conversations sessions. 14 project ideas have been proposed by participants to adapt our city to climate change. More ideas are needed, so why not come along to the New Projects session?   Climate Conversation sessions, and the projects that arise out of them, are community-led and driven projects. Their purpose is to green up local streets, activity centres and homes. The City of Port Phillip Council is acting as a catalyst, providing resources, and expertise, to get projects started, and help out along the way. Council has many climate action projects and hopes that Climate Conversation sessions will empower local people to implement more.
