After the meeting, there will be a guest speaker, Kitty Walker, who will tell us about the Queenscliffe Climate Emergency Response Plan.
Kitty lives with her young family in Point Lonsdale and founded the Queenscliffe Climate Action Group (QCAG) in October 2019 after organising a series of community meetings to discuss the increasing, local impacts of the climate crisis. With zero climate action experience but an incredibly passionate community surrounding her, she led QCAG to work with the Borough of Queenscliffe, the smallest LGA in Victoria, to declare a climate emergency and commit to developing a response plan in partnership with the community.
The Borough’s ambitious Climate Emergency Response Plan was endorsed by Councillors on 19 May 2021. Its key aim is to transition the Borough to become a Zero Carbon Community by 2031. QCAG’s focus now is to engage the community and work with partners to implement the 49 actions across eight pillars, as outlined in the Plan.
Hoping to see you at the meeting. Please pass this notice on to others, and everyone is welcome to come along to hear about MASG and to hear our guest speaker.
