Energy, Transport, Food, Nature, Built Environment: these are the areas we need to cover if we're to have a chance of drawing down carbon and bring our species back from the brink. We also need to get wise about the issues and science from trusted sources, then get noisy and political about our concerns - so there are sections for them too.
There are gaps here, we realise. We're hoping to fill this page with those who are, well, on our page - and operating in South Gippsland. Get in touch if there's a group or business you've discovered that should be here - the more we all know about who's doing good for the climate, the sooner we'll succeed.
