Climate Reality LogoOur climate is changing – rapidly. We see extreme heat waves and weather events around the world and at home. How are these affecting us?   How do we adapt to an environment which is hotter, drier and creates far more challenging weather conditions?

In 2019 -20 BREAZE is hosting a series of Climate Change adaptation forums. We want these forums to give the regional Ballarat community an opportunity to understand the challenges we face with global warming and a determination to take action as a community.

We have already completed an Adaption Discussion / Promotion regarding these events. 

We look forward to your support.
