Councils have led the world in declaring that we face a climate emergency, and they can lead the world again by entering full emergency mode.
The Shire of Yarra Ranges community has already got it’s council to declare a climate emergency, however this alone will not be enough to save us.
CACE (Council and community Action in the Climate Emergency) is now working with community groups to get the first councils in the world to enter full emergency mode.
By entering emergency mode the Shire can demonstrate to higher levels of government the type of response we need if we are to avoid a climate collapse.
On November 29th, 6- 8.30pm, CACE is co-hosting a Planning Meeting on how the Yarra Ranges community can work towards getting the Shire to enter a full emergency mobilisation to restore a safe climate.
This Meeting is on the Friday as the first event the Red and Blue weekend at ECOSS and is open to all members of the community want action to reverse global warming.
The meeting will be held in The Coop at Yarra Valley ECOSS.
