Climate Summit for Local Government

Sept 6-8, 2023 | Melbourne

The Cities Power Partnership will postpone its national climate summit, Transforming Australia 2020, in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Cities Power Partnership director, David Craven said the summit would still be held in Noosa, however postponed until next year.

“With the government implementing stronger social distancing measures to contain the spread of COVID-19, we believe postponing our physical event to early next year is the safest course of action,” said Mr Craven, director, Cities Power Partnership.

“Australia’s immediate attention needs to be focused on COVID-19, however when the situation stabilises, we will be ready to draw local government, industry and community together to work on climate and energy projects.”

Mr Craven said the Cities Power Partnership would monitor the situation closely and announce dates once it is safe for both attendees and the community.

“As the response to the COVID-19 crisis has shown, we’re all in this together and so we look forward to the 2021 summit to join forces and develop bold climate and energy solutions,” he said.
