Advocacy Work

One of our main goals at BBSN is to advocate on behalf of our local community.

We aim to encourage State and Federal governments, as well as the Baw Baw Shire, to adopt more sustainable practices and assist our local community to live a more energy efficient and comfortable life. 

Our work includes lending support to like-minded organisations, as well as educating and encouraging our local community to lead more sustainable lives. 

Below you'll find some examples of our advocacy work as well as local stories to educate and inspire. .
