Past events

Public Meeting 8 August 2020 Berridale Community Hall and on Zoom.

A dedicated group of Climate Action Monaro  members appreciated an excellent presentation by Jenny Goldie, President Climate Action Monaro  “Where shall we live in light of bushfires, climate change and pandemics?” Jenny described the future opportunities in Australia, and across the planet, for liveable areas under the current scenario of global heating. A sobering story. Please find a copy of the presentation here:
