A vision for our city

cover_200w-shadowThe 36-page booklet ‘The Solution – a vision for our city’ which currently is being printed in 100 copies to be distributed for free to schools in Geelong, outlines how it is possible to renew Geelong and create a cleaner, greener and more prosperous city when only we have reached a critical mass of citizens who subscribe to this idea.

Global climate action event on 21 September

“The UN has called an urgent climate meeting in just over 100 days with all major world leaders — if we greet them on September 20th with the largest ever global climate mobilisation in history we can break through the walls of mega coal, oil, and business that prevent even the best politicians from doing what is right.

It’s our “holy shit” climate moment according to a leading NASA scientist, and only a holy shit massive coordinated day of action response, right now, can change the future we’re facing.

Our greatest hope to tackle the challenge of global warming rests with us and our ability to demand greater action from world leaders. To change everything, it takes everyone — let’s get started!”

21 September 2014 could become the biggest climate campaign event the world has ever seen, demanding that urgent climate action is no longer being ignored.
