Bendigo Climate Summit puts climate change on centre stage

As one of the major partners of the Bendigo Climate Collaboration, Fosterville Gold Mine invites you to The Greater Bendigo Climate Summit, a perfect opportunity to be inspired, collaborate, and commit to climate action in our region. The summit will take place on Saturday, May 27, from 9am, at the Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo. 

This event will feature The Great Transport Debate – Zero Emissions by 2030, hosted by Natasha Mitchell and broadcasted on Big Ideas on ABC Radio National. The debate will bring together experts from all over to discuss how we can reach zero emissions by 2030, and it's an opportunity for you to get involved and have your say.

The event goes beyond debates and speeches, with trade stalls, practical workshops hosted by Bendigo Sustainability Group and Bendigo TAFE, and a screening of Damon Gameau's Regeneration movie, demonstrating how regenerative farming can reverse climate change. Open to anyone who wants to make a difference, the summit features how-to sessions, demonstrations, and a Climate Justice and Interfaith Panel to learn about climate justice and actively contribute to climate action in our community.

Following the summit, don't miss Electrifying Everything Greater Bendigo, featuring Saul Griffith, a renowned inventor and former climate advisor to Joe Biden. Griffith will argue for an Electrification Revolution in Greater Bendigo that will create healthier homes, switch buildings to renewable energy, and reduce power bills.

So, mark your calendars for May 27 and prepare to be a part of something great. Register early to ensure your seat at the table for the Greater Bendigo Climate Summit and participate in the event that could change our community's future trajectory.
