Join the Eden-Monaro climate action road trip

Anyone who wants to find out more about what is happening to tackle climate change in our

area is invited to join the Eden-Monaro climate action road trip, from Friday 1 April to Sunday 3 April.

The tour, hosted by the Australian Conservation Foundation, will stop at Yass, Collector,

Cooma, Bega and Narooma and includes visits to a wind farm and meetings with forest

conservationists to hear about energy and nature-based solutions to the climate crisis.

“Eden-Monaro covers a vast area, from the stunning Snowy Mountains to the beautiful

coastline,” said ACF Eden-Monaro community member Iain Fyfe.

“In recent years we have seen native forests over-logged and have experienced devastating droughts, bushfires and floods.

“We need a plan from our federal government to cut climate pollution by more than half this

decade to protect communities like ours from worsening climate damage.

“This is an opportunity for people to find out more about the solutions for a safe and healthy

future for everyone.”

A recent poll shows people around Australia are optimistic about the costs and benefits of

taking climate action with a majority in every federal electorate believing there will be long

term benefits to them and the country.

Around 7-in-10 people across Australia recognise that action on climate change will deliver

long term economic benefits, a poll of more than 15,000 people conducted in January shows.

In the seat of Eden-Monaro a significant majority (67%) believe greater action on climate

change will outweigh any costs involved.

Together We Can is a movement of people, groups and businesses from all over the country

who are raising their voices for stronger action on climate change.

People are encouraged to RSVP for individual events or for the whole road trip.
