At the next meeting of CCL Central Sydney on Tuesday 28 May we welcome guest speaker Daniela Ramirez, Senior Sustainability Officer at Georges River Council, who will talk to us about the Council’s efforts to reduce its operational carbon footprint and how Council is contributing to developing the Metropolitan Sydney Environmental Footprint as part of the strategy Resilient Sydney. Daniela will also discuss Council’s plan to work towards the recently released NSW Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Plan in terms of the uptake of electric vehicles and the supply of charging points for them.
Ms Ramirez has 15 years’ experience working in sustainability and carbon management. Before taking up the position with Georges River Council she spent 12 years working for the New Zealand Government, first in the Crown Research Institute Landcare Research and more recently for Christchurch City Council.
Central Sydney group of Citizens' Climate Lobby meets at Oatley RSL on the fourth Tuesday of each month. The meetings start at 7 pm, but all are welcome to join us from 6 pm at Cellini’s Café and Bar, Queen Victoria Building opposite Hobbyco Level 2 - look for Citizens' Climate Lobby T-shirts.
We are always looking to exchange ideas for writing letters to the press. We are looking for ways to facilitate interaction between members of the public and community leaders including our elected representatives at all levels of government.
Finding solutions to mitigate global warming is an urgent matter and all ideas are welcome. Solutions include encouraging political will, and finding ways to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and to draw them out of the atmosphere.
No pressure. Just come for a short film if you don't feel in a political mood.
See you there!
