Moreland Community Conversation: Our Changing Planet

With the current extreme heatwave a lot of people are talking about climate change and what we can do to adapt to a changing climate and how we can act to prevent greater impacts of global warming in the future. Even President Obama is saying action on climate change needs to escalate to provide a future for our children.

On the 100th anniversary of the installation of the first electric light in what is now Moreland, we can reflect on how we can work collectively for a sustainable future. The session includes guest speakers Anna Rose, founder of Australian Youth Climate Coalition and Sam Scholten, a high school student about the power of the people in combating climate change.

Tuesday 5 February, 6 – 9 pm
Fawkner Senior Citizens Centre, Jukes Road, Fawkner

This event is one of a series for a Community Plan for Moreland – a place for the future.

Watch Anna Rose being interviewed on Network 10 in December 2012:

What can Moreland be like in 2025?

Imagine the future here in twelve years. Our ‘one community proudly diverse’ has grown. More people live here yet our quality of life is still good. For cities to grow and change for the better, it takes good planning. One way that Moreland City Council will plan for a better future is through a Community Plan
