Climate Resilience Inquiry Submission Making Party

Climate Resilience Inquiry Submission Making Party

You are invited to a very special event - a submission-making party for the state government's Climate Resilience Inquiry into how ready communities are to handle climate related disasters.

The Darebin Neighbourhood House Network and Darebin Climate Action Now (DCAN) have joined together to host the event on May 27th from 7 to 9 pm at Span Community House, 64 Clyde Street, Thornbury.

The Inquiry is looking at the impact of climate change on buildings and natural areas, including homes, schools, parks and beaches, as well as how we use these places.

This event is a great opportunity for you to talk about your climate change experiences and suggest ways to deal with these issues.

Come and share your thoughts and ideas with our community in Darebin.

Please sign up for the event via this Eventbrite link.

Find out how to make your dream of an all-electric home come true at the Electrification Masterclass in Thornbury Sunday afternoon on the 18th Feb.  Check your readiness to join the Masterclass by taking this quick quiz at:

The Darebin Electrification Masterclass is run by local business Energy Freedom Homes and Darebin Climate Action Now (DCAN) and is designed to take the hassle and risk out of transitioning to an all-electric home.  

As a masterclass participant you will first complete a home assessment to identify your unique needs and goals. You will then be matched with hand picked experts who’ll use your profile to provide personalized advice and help you create a robust electrification plan for your home. After finalising your plan you will meet installers who have been vetted for quality, fair-priced installations with reliable multi-year guarantees and support.    

Tickets to the masterclass are at the subsidised half price rate of $50 with some places available for anyone experiencing financial difficulties. If you aren't yet ready for the masterclass the readiness survey will give you access to a wealth of free resources to help you on your journey. For more information email Karen at [email protected]

Proudly supported by the City of Darebin's Community Grants Program.
