Yes 2 Renewables and Geelong Sustainability have joined forces to launch a community-run research project in the lead up to the Victorian election on November 29.
The groups kicked off a community-run research project on Wednesday August 6, hosting the first of many ‘kitchen table conversations’ where community members come together and discuss the region’s energy future. The findings of our Kitchen Table Conversations will be presented to candidates in the lead up to the Victorian election on November 29.
The challenges of tackling global warming and the shift to renewable energy form the backdrop for dramatic changes in Geelong’s economy. Yet as the world shifts towards clean, renewable energy sources, the Victorian government has put on the brakes - putting jobs and investment at risk. Wind farms are banned in the windiest parts of the state. And unlike our South Australian neighbours, Victoria has been without a renewable energy target for years.
Thanks for expressing interest in hosting your own Kitchen Table Conversation. Please register your event below and we'll be in touch.
If you have any questions, please contact Yes 2 Renewables coordinator Leigh Ewbank (firstname.lastname@example.org or 0406 316 176)
