There’s been progress on climate change in Victoria. The state government strengthened the Climate Change Act, legislated a permanent ban on onshore gasfields, and set Victorian Renewable Energy Targets. But with climate impacts intensifying, such as Melbourne’s record-breaking November heatwave, there’s a need for more leadership. This forum will present ideas for what comes next, from big picture thinking to a community perspective.
Thought leader Philip Sutton will outline the No More Bad Investments legislation, Friends of the Earth’s Chloe Aldenhoven will make the case for a climate budget, and a guest community member will speak about action in rural Victoria.
