2015 is the watershed year for climate change action in Paris.
2015 has also been a dramatic year for our community in the Strathbogies.
We have had a really good response to our environment series with people coming from all over the state to contribute as community members. Hundreds of people have joined us. We have created a community energy committee and encouraged other work on environmental management systems.
We have also had a great response from people who have come to be our speakers, all volunteers. Some came on the train, some arrived for breakfast. All stayed for lunch.
Warmth and generosity has typified the whole year. The series is captured on the website http://www.StrathbogieVoices.com.au
We are polishing our final video with our film crew Tiny Empire Collective. Watch for the post on the StathbogieVoices YouTube channel. And then we are taking it to Paris.
We are starting to plan for 2016….
