About the Event
As climate catastrophe looms ever closer, some opinion leaders still hold fast to the view that we must not mention the seriousness of our plight for fear of demoralising people.
But how could we explain to our children, in some dystopian future of runaway global warming, that we held back from telling the truth at a time when human action could still have made a difference? It’s time to talk honestly about the climate emergency and what we need to do to save human civilisation and the precious eco-systems on which we depend.
Darebin City Council, amongst others, has declared a climate emergency. How about our Gippsland councils? See what Jane has to say, and stay for networking and light supper afterward the talk.
