How can we shape the economic recovery from COVID-19 in a way that’s good for climate, nature and our community?
The COVID-19 crisis hit at a critical moment for Central Queensland as we start the transition from an economy based on fossil fuels to one powered by renewable energy.
Recently, The Next Economy spoke to Central Queenslanders about how they want to manage this transition. In this webinar The Next Economy’s CEO, Dr. Amanda Cahill, will report back on what locals want to see happen and explain what a Just Transition means for our region.
RSVP and we'll send you an email with the link to join the webinar via Zoom. Hope to see you there!
