Climate Adaptation Forums

In 2018/19 BREAZE and Ben in collaboration with Federation University and the Regional Sustainability Alliance Ballarat (RSAB) developed plans for two Climate Adaptation Forums - addressing the need for greater public awareness of the New Bushfire Reality and the challenges to Biodiversity.

ClimateRealityLogoThe New Bush Fire Reality Climate Adaptation Forum was held on 10 November 2019 at the Ballaarat Mechanics Institute.

The panel of speakers included:

      • Michael Boatman – Operations Manager Ballarat Country Fire Authority (CFA),
        Chair Grampians Fire Emergency Committee
      • Adrian Whitehead – from Council Action in the Climate Emergency (CACE)
      • Bill Cook – Municipal Emergency Manager, City of Ballarat and CFA volunteer.
      • Tony Brady – CFA Vegetation Management Officer

The Report of the Forum can be downloaded from the column links on the right.

The Biodiversity Climate Adaptation Forum will be held later in 2021 or in early 2022, depending on the Covid vaccine roll out and related restrictions.

If you are interested in being involved in the Biodiversity Forum please get in touch with BREAZE Inc. We have a forum sub-committee and would love to have more volunteers.
