Friday 29th of July 2022 12:00 pm (AEST)
Join Saul Griffith during this online Local Government Solution Exchange where we will figure out how the suburbs are going to save the world.
Electrifying our cars and our homes is the concrete action Australians can make this decade that will save us money and save our kids’ future. Australia has the opportunity to lead the world on decarbonization, savings and delivering an equitable electrification revolution. We need to be designing the policy environment that enables this future outcome immediately. The role of Local Governments is vital.
Open to all who are interested, particularly Local Government elected members, staff or practitioners and active community members.
