Take2 Pledge Workshop Take2 Pledge Workshop

The Victorian Government has set a target of net zero emissions by 2050 and is calling on all Victorians to take action to help achieve this goal.

On 9 June 2016, Premier Daniel Andrews and Minister for Energy, Environment, and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio launched TAKE2 - a voluntary pledge program to take action on climate change.

Sustainability Victoria is proud to be delivering the TAKE2 program that will assist businesses, local government, communities, schools and individuals across the state to get involved and be part of Victoria’s pathway to net zero emissions.TAKE2 pledges and commitments to action will contribute to Victoria’s first interim target to 2020 and inform future climate change policy.

We want all Victorians to TAKE2 by pledging to take action on climate change to be on track to limit global warming to below 2°C.

You’re invited to join us This is your opportunity to help shape Victoria’s voluntary multi sector climate change pledge program and to ensure it is robust, meaningful and relevant to your sector.

Over the two and a half hour session participants will help: • Determine what would attract you or others from your sector to pledge. • Test draft voluntary pledge themes and actions. • Determine what resources and support participants may need to take action. • Consider what participants may require to measure the impact of their actions.

Invitation to Climate Change Masterclasses for Community Groups - Morwell 26th June

Six months ago in Stratford and Warragul, the Gippsland Community who are engaged in environmental issues came together to discuss how and where local action was occuring around the issue of climate change, and what we saw as priorities for action. One of the top priority areas identified was how to connect with a wider audience in our local community on this important issue. SEE http://participate.sustainability.vic.gov.au/climatechangeconversations/documents

As a result, one of the things SV has been doing is working with the Strathbogie Voices on looking to learn about their Euroa Environment series aswell as other approaches, and would like to share this with the Gippsland community and others in Regional Victoria. SEE http://participate.sustainability.vic.gov.au/climatechangeconversations/videos/2052

Community groups concerned with environment and sustainability issues are invited to attend any of the sessions, but in Gippsland it will be offered Sunday 26th June 1.30 – 5.00pm at the Coal Valley Motor Inn 141 Princess Drive Morwell

The workshop will aim to develop skills in community engagement on climate change. At these half day sessions community groups will review their current community engagement activities, be introduced to fresh ideas to reinvigorate approaches and help build skills in having a climate change conversation with a wider local audience. The session will be delivered by the community for the community.

Feel free to forward this onto your community networks or other community groups either directly or indirectly involved in the issue of climate change.
