Climate Summit for Local Government

Sept 6-8, 2023 | Melbourne

Welcome to Cairns, a tropical paradise – perfect for a snorkel or a walk in the rainforest. But it’s also an Australian community leading the charge to a clean, healthy future.

With an abundance of sun and wind, Queensland is on its way to being a world leader in clean technology and renewable energy. And Cairns Council has a plan to use the region’s natural advantage to take the lead on the country’s clean economy.

From rolling out solar on council and community buildings to local businesses doing their bit to protect and restore the Great Barrier Reef, this community is future-proofing paradise.
