Getting together to take action on climate

Clarence Climate Action held its inaugural Community Expo last month at Alma’s Activities Centre in Bellerive. The expo was a great success with 100 people coming together to network and learn more about positive actions everyone can take to create a better climate future.

Guest speakers discussed electric cars and bikes, home solar, ethical finance and the positive initiatives being taken by Clarence City Council.

Participants also engaged with community groups that included Plasticwise Eastside, Landcare Tasmania, Permaculture Tasmania and Warrane Community Garden.

Clarence City Council Aldermen Beth Warren, Wendy Kennedy and Luke Edmunds all attended, showing their support for local action on climate change.

“There is clearly an appetite for this sort of information,” Alderman Warren said.

“It was inspiring to see what a small, but passionate community group can put together for the benefit of the greater community.”

Clarence Climate Action also launched its new website at the event.

The website includes ‘random acts of climate kindness’ for simple suggestions of positive actions anyone can incorporate into their life, as well as many ways to get involved and connected with the climate-minded community of Clarence.

Formed last year, Clarence Climate Action is a local community group focused on creating a better future. They believe that together, the smallest of positive actions can make a real difference.
