On Friday 25th September, School Strike 4 Climate are hosting hundreds of activities around Australia for the ‘Fund Our Future Not Gas’ day of action. DCAN has joined with local school students to arrange four local events. We would love you to join us and also invite along any young people in your life.
Join us for a webinar with local school kids - 25 September 10.30am
Join us and local School Strikers in an online webinar to find out how we can support them in their fight for a better future. With a Federal Government determined to invest in a gas fueled recovery, there has never been a more important time for us to campaign for a recovery based on renewables. We will also hear from Jeff Nottle, President of the Phillip Island Conservation Society about the proposed mega gas project in Westernport Bay and the community campaign to stop it. RSVP here to receive the zoom link.
