It's time to accelerate Sustainable Cities as we head toward the Victorian state election in November this year.
As we head towards the voting booths in November, Sustainable Cities will be focusing on our 'Better Buses' campaign to get fast, frequent, connected buses in Melbourne's Western suburbs, serviced by a fleet of clean, electric buses. 🚌 🚌 🚌
Public transport is for everyone, and should be easily accessible to the growing communities in our West. Instead of depending on cars run on fossil fuels, we need an improved bus network, serviced by a fleet of clean, electric buses, to connect the community to essential services such as shopping centres, school, hospitals, and also to each other.
Join us for a monthly meeting in person to discuss next moves for the campaign and how we can work together and achieve real, sustainable change.
Please note we also hold meetings once a month online (via zoom), and there is a separate event page for that on the events page our Friends of the Earth Melbourne website.
Online meetings will be held:
August 9th, September 6th, October 4th, November 1st, and November 29th.
In person meetings will be held:
July 26th, August 23rd, September 20th, October 18th, November 15th and December 13th.
RSVP now and we will email you the location before the meeting.
Please note: The meeting venue is subject to change as we try to accommodate the needs of people across the West, we want everyone to be able to attend some in person meetings, as well as online.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waterways in the area now known as Victoria. We pay respect to Elders past, present, and emerging, as well as to all First Nations communities who significantly contribute to the life of the area. We acknowledge sovereignty was never ceded. This is stolen land. 🖤💛❤️
