SEE-Change Inner South Group regular meeting

Filed under Calendar Event

What is Happening:

Join us for the next regular meeting of SEE-Change Inner South.

The SEE-Change Inner South group emerged following a seminar at Manning Clark House in Forrest in August 2009 on a carbon-neutral Canberra.  Professor Will Steffen, Executive Director of ANU’s Climate Change Institute, talked about ‘Meeting the Climate Change Challenge: A Vision for Canberra and the Region’. Professor Bob Douglas AO, Chair of SEE-Change. then asked, ‘What will a carbon-neutral Canberra look like and what will it take to bring it about?’  After questions from the audience, Bob led a brainstorming session about how we can assist the government in meeting its climate change and sustainability goals, while at the same time fostering stronger communities.

Since then, SEE-Change Inner South has:

  • organised viewings of local homes to share information and inspire us about things we can do to reduce our ecological footprint
  • made use of equipment to monitor energy use – you can borrow a Home Energy Action Kit through the ACT Public Libraries
  • held a briefing on the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit
  • prepared submissions to the ACT Government

Here is a list of submissions we have made:

  • sustainable public transport
  • urban forest management and renewal
  • the East Lake development
  • Draft Variation No. 301 to the Territory Plan (estate development code)

We are currently working on a submission on Draft Variation No. 303 to the Territory Plan (Residential Zones Development Codes and Lease Variation General Code) and have made an interim submission.  If you would like to contribute to the main submission, please contact inner.south@see-change.org.au.
