This is about a meeting starting 7 pm on Tuesday 24 August. Central Sydney Branch of Citizens' Climate Lobby holds regular meetings on the fourth Tuesday of each month. For advanced information, go to ccl.org.au and click on Events, then Upcoming Events.
Owing to lockdown the meeting is now ONLY ONLINE. Shortly before 7pm go to zoom.us/j/with the following Zoom number 2023151151, and the host will let you in. Note new Zoom number.
You will be entertained as long-standing members tell you about the achievements and plans of Citizens' Climate Lobby. Here is your chance to hear what others have to say and to voice your opinion about the next action that members of Citizens’ Climate Lobby may take. For example CCL Australia is currently campaigning to raise awareness of the importance of Net Zero Emissions (NZE) in the community and the federal government before Australia will be represented at the Conference of the Parties (COP26), 31 October to 12 November in Glasgow.
At some stage of the meeting, we introduce ourselves, tell of any good news, and long-time members explain to newcomers how Citizens' Climate Lobby advocacy for action on climate change complements protest demonstrations.
You will have opportunities to have your say.
Hoping to see you on screen!

We entertain, educate and support each other in raising public awareness about the seriousness and urgency of acting to find solutions to the climate disruption problem by
- proposing a brilliant method of pricing fossil fuels
- helping each other with writing letters to newspapers and to community leaders
- form well-thought-out strategies for meetings with community leaders, including politicians, especially to encourage consensus on the urgent need to stem carbon emissions.
Our meetings are interesting and enjoyable, even though the underlying motive is serious and the involvement of people at the "grass-roots" level has never been more important.
More suggestions for agenda:
- Progress on communicating with community leaders including politicians at all levels of government
- Help each other to write letters to community leaders
- Information tables at fairs and shopping centres, including "Message your MP" forms
- Educate each other on the science and politics accelerating the transition to a fossil-free economy, and the urgent need for the acceleration.
- Exchange of ideas and experiences
- Phone contacts
- Show amusing video
