What is Ballarat Climate Action 2014?

Local environmental and sustainability groups have joined together to arrange events and activities throughout 2014 – to encourage Ballarat and district residents to reduce their impacts on global warming and call on all levels of government and industry for stronger measures to address climate change. BCA 2014 is collating, publishing and promoting these community events on a monthly calendar available on Facebook and the web. There are regular sustainable house tours, Green Drinks, workshops, local produce markets, seminars, get-togethers over local food, displays, films, art and will culminate in December with a 2014 local rally on climate.

All are welcome to attend these events hosted by the various groups. Besides spreading the sustainability message, activities encourage socialising and fun - with many events aimed at attracting new “activists”. We need a groundswell of support and actions to ensure the future we want for our children.
If you or your organisation has something to contribute we would love to hear from you!

What groups are hosting events and what are their contact details? There are many locals involved in a wide range of environmental and sustainability groups who are working in a multitude of ways to reduce their impacts on our environment, lobby for stronger measures on global warming and help ensure a clean, green future. Although events are promoted on the BCA 2014 calendar, you will need to contact the event host for further details.
