Climate Action Now Wingecarribee AGM

The Annual General Meeting of Climate Action Now Wingecarribee, Inc. will be held at Mittagong RSL on Thursday 7th November at 11am

The CANWin management committee urges all members and those in the Wingecarribee shire concerned about the need to take action on climate to

Turn Up! Speak Up! and Join!

To provide a future pathway for everyone in the Wingecarribee shire to meet the challenges of looming climate change impacts on our society.

A party for the climate: a personal view

Independents for Climate Action Now is a very new political party which aims to work with both sides of politics to push Australia towards climate action. Their website shows their policy statements and their brief history.

The party leader, who heads the ICAN Senate ticket in NSW, is Father Rod Bower. Fr Bower is famous for the messages he posted on the signboard  of the East Gosford Anglican Church.

If climate is a single issue, then ICAN is a single issue party and for this election I’m a single issue voter.

I can’t see Fr Bower being elected, but it seems to me that a vote for ICAN is the clearest way I can tell my representatives that action on climate must be their first priority.

Friday 15 March, Supporting SCHOOLS STRIKE 4 CLIMATE

Schools Strike 4 Climate protesters and placards

By now we are sure that you have heard something re the school students plan to strike (away from school) on Friday 15th March.

Main event planned so far is at Corbett Garden in Bowral from 10:00am till noon.

To supplement this event and to cater to students in Moss Vale and surrounds, the Seniors’ volunteer groups, CANWin, Grey Power Protecting Climate and the Moss Vale Community Garden are organising a follow-up event at the Moss Vale Community Garden starting at 1:00pm.

Many members of these Seniors’ groups, as well as other adults, are keen to show acknowledgment and support for these students by attending these functions.

You are invited to join us in demonstrating our support and our desire to make politicians aware of the problems that the people of the future generations will face in dealing with global warming problems.

We look forward to seeing you at either or both of these events.
