A large component of what the Gippsland Climate Change Network does is focused on connecting and collaborating with local communities, businesses, and government organisations around climate change awareness and solutions. Engage Gippsand is a platform for some of our ongoing partnerships that work in this space
We aim to generate the sort of conversations and opportunities that:
- Inform Gippsland about local climate change challenges and opportunities
- Be a positive voice that inspires solution-based outcomes
- Connect, engage and bring together a diversity of stakeholders
- Suport other groups to come together to take action
Communities Leading Change
Communities Leading Change is a collective of people connected to Latrobe Valley and surrounding areas, who believe the region can transition to a zero emissions economy for a prosperous, thriving, connected and fair community. The best chance for this to happen is to build upon the efforts of other local groups, and to bring people from across all sectors of our community together to lead this change.
Hosted by Federation University Australia and auspiced under the Gippsland Climate Change Network, this group is made up of representatives from education, local governance, sustainability and community action groups. They aim to find ways to implement the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals in Gippsland.
