MORE INFO:The Andrews govt is required to write Victoria’s first ever Climate Change Strategy by October 31 this year. But while they deal with the pandemic, community members around the state are coming together online to write a People’s Climate Strategy for Victoria.The strategy must look at how each region and economic sector of Victoria can rapidly cut emissions, while creating jobs, and tackling disadvantage.

This event is part of a running a series of forums for community members to discuss how we can do just that, with presentations from knowledgeable people in each field.
