Safe Climate Alliance presents
How Councils can Reverse Global Warming
Exploring the critical role
With State and Federal Governments failing to implement policies to reestablish a safe climate, this workshop explores the critical role local government can play in both reversing global warming and protecting lives in their community. Issues explored include leadership, reaching zero emissions, draw down through council run biochar systems, creating community resilience, and a discussion on how audience members can encourage their local council to take up these measures.
Philip Sutton – will be discussing why local governments are critical in accelerating a climate emergency response at Federal and State levels.
Trent McCarthy (Darebin Green Councillor) – will enlighten us about his initial work on the Climate Emergency at Darebin and the North Alliance for Greenhouse Action (NAGA) and explore ways in which to talk to councillors about climate emergency.
Mik Adit – Will lead a presentation about the climate emergency declaration campaign.
Bryony Edwards – Bryony will reflect on her experience in running for local government and the opportunities it brings for campaigning on the climate emergency.
Adrian Whitehead – will act as Master Compere for the event and talk about how councils can actually reverse global warming by helping remove CO2 and methane from the atmosphere.
