Afternoon Tea Q&A – Net Zero Communities with the City of Greater Geelong

6 Jul 2023
3:00pm - 3:30pm
Join us on Zoom

Join us for afternoon tea at 3pm AEST Thursday 6 July as we hear from the City of Greater Geelong who have an exemplary Net Zero Community Target of 2035, backed by an extensive Climate Change Response Plan. Council works hard to maintain its partnership with the community in order to achieve the 89 actions that are laid out in the plan.

Increasing the community’s awareness and understanding of climate impacts, whilst effectively communicating council’s strategy to mitigate climate change with the community, is essential if Geelong is to achieve its commitment to Net Zero.

Join us to hear about Geelong’s journey so far with its Net Zero Community target and the lessons learned along the way.

Our Afternoon Tea Q&As run for half an hour, every second Thursday at 3pm AEST. We’d love you to join us!
