An event that will stimulate, inspire and entertain
On Saturday 26 September, Tim Flannery, Chief Councillor at the Climate Council will be talking at the Castlemaine Town Hall about how Australia can prepare itself for a clean energy future in the light of the remarkable growth of renewables in Australia. Professor Flannery is an inspirational speaker on climate change and the Hub Foundation Castlemaine is delighted to be hosting this event. Profits from the evening will go to local organisations involved in sustainability as well as the Climate Council.
Before and after Tim’s talk, there will be live music to enjoy. Sit back, enjoy a glass of local wine or soft drink with friends. If you choose, there will be a light evening meal using locally sourced produce prepared by Growing Abundance. And afterwards, if the mood takes you, get up and dance to music provided by the Seduceaphones, a talented young band from Castlemaine and Bendigo with a Balkan funk vibe.
For those wishing to have dinner, there is a light evening meal provided if you purchase a ticket downstairs. Otherwise seating is available upstairs to hear Tim’s talk and enjoy the music – and dance if you like – afterwards.

The Next Pot Luck - Friday August 21st, 2015 - at the Ballarat Obsevatory
The Ballaarat Observatory is taking part in a Guinness Book of World Records Stargazing Event on the same night as our Pot Luck Dinner so if we meet at the observatory, we can partake of both events!
Address: Corner Cobden & Magpie Street, Mt. Pleasant, Ballarat
There is a cosy house with tables and chairs where we can eat and talk (picnic food might make is easier) and you can choose whether to participate in the observing!
If you would like to join in and receive your Certificate of Participation for the World Record attempt, you need to book asap.
You can do that by going online to: http://observatory.ballarat.net/events/event/guiness-book-of-world-records-stargazing
You have two options:

If you want to purchase the small telescope organised for the event , the cost is $10
Hope to see you there!

This site has been specifically created for the community of the Ballarat region.
It is designed for individuals that “get it” and are looking for quick access to the latest and most reliable information and resources available on the issues of climate change to assist them to respond effectively in their own area of influence. It cuts through the dross to assist in good decision making and to facilitate action at the local level.
This site acts as a filter and pointer for individuals looking for specific climate change information/ resources. It is NOT a blog and you will find no mention of how to change a light bulb, make compost or insulate your house.
