From Queenscliffe Climate Action....
Tonight’s the night!
7pm, Queenscliff Town Hall, 50 Learmonth Street.
Our petition of 2145 signatures to the Borough of Queenscliffe requesting that they declare a climate emergency and commit to developing a response plan in partnership with the community is on tonight’s council meeting agenda.
We do not know if a vote will take place tonight - there is every chance that a decision will be held until their next meeting in January - but we must show Council that their community overwhelmingly supports this urgent call for action by showing up in person, wearing red.
And, if a vote doesn’t occur, we need to respect Council’s decision to hold off for another month – as frustrating as it will feel.
This is our final chance to gather together in 2019 to celebrate everything that our beautiful community has achieved since our first meeting in Point Lonsdale on 30 October. What an amazing few months!
Hope to see you there :)
PS. The Mount Alexander Shire Council (Castlemaine area) declared a climate emergency two days ago as it faces a predicted surge in the number and intensity of extreme weather events.
