The transition away from burning dirty fuels to clean energy from the sun and the wind is here – and Gladstone is well placed to benefit as the world acts to stop climate damage and move towards clean energy.
But we need a plan to make sure that we seize this opportunity and that workers, their families and the broader community are properly supported through the changes that will come to the local economy.
Come along to the “Gladstone in Transition” community forum to hear expert speakers discuss the challenges and opportunities of this transition:
- Dr Amanda Cahill – CEO of The Next Economy
- Wendy Farmer – President of Voices of the Valley
- Michael Lord – Head of Research for Beyond Zero Emissions
- Jason Lyddieth – Campaigner for Australian Conservation Foundation
The Next Economy is an NGO that supports regional communities dealing with economic change to explore the opportunities in moving towards a zero emissions economy. ACF may pass on your contact details to the host for the purpose of running the event.
