How Councils can Reverse Global Warming

Hosted by Adrian Whitehead

Nine-Yarra-councillors-700-whiteline-700x449.jpg

With State and Federal Governments failing to implement policy to reestablish a safe climate, local governments around the world have begun to acknowledge we are in a climate emergency and lake leadership positions on this issue.

This forum explores this growing internal movement that began Australia and the critical role local government can play reversing global warming. Issues discussed include what is happening globally and in Australia, leadership by local government through acknowledging and declaring a climate emergency, what a local government climate emergency response would look like, how councils can play a part in drawdown, and how to get your council into emergency mode.

The forum is designed for existing Councillors, council staff, and community members wanting to understand or being to implement a climate emergency response at council; and community members considering running a local government climate emergency declaration campaign.

Speakers include Adrian Whitehead and Byrony Edwards from CACE Community Action in the Climate Emergency. CACE is campaigning nationally to support local governments to declare climate emergencies and get into climate emergency mode.  See caceonline.org for more info.

Hosted by Adelaide Sustainability Centre

rp0103.jpg

Do you have a broken household item you’d like fixed but need a hand to do so? Then this is your opportunity. Clothes, ceramics, computers, jewellery, furniture...no job to big or small. You just need to be able to carry it in and be happy to sit with the fixers and learn how to fix it. You’re also welcome to drop in if you have something you want to fix and are just looking for advice on how to do so.

CHECK SOCIAL MEDIA A WEEK BEFORE TO FIND OUT WHAT REPAIRS WE WILL OFFER.

Our Repair Café is a free meeting place to bring along broken household items with the help of experienced, volunteer repairers. Maximum three items per person per session. You must be able to carry an item in your arms - no smartphones, cars, whitegoods or large pieces of furniture.

Please note we are not a pick up and drop-off repair service - we want visitors to get involved and learn from the repair process.

Adelaide Repair Café is proudly supported by Adelaide Sustainability Centre, a community partnership between the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management Board and Conservation SA, and is funded through ‘Fund My Neighbourhood’.

Fixing is free, but donations encouraged to cover our costs.

Clothes Swap Party!

Hosted by Adelaide Sustainability Centre

clotheswapparty.png

After some guilt free shopping? Well it’s time to swap instead of shop! The Adelaide Sustainability Centre invites you to scour your wardrobe and pull out those quality items that no longer serve you, fit you or inspire you. Chances are there is someone else out there who will give that starved piece the love and affection it deserves. Do your bit to curb the fashion industry’s consumerism agenda, in style.

 

The way it works:

Select the items in your wardrobe that are due to be moved on. These items could be clothing, accessories and shoes that you would pass on to a friend. Consider not only skirts, pants and jackets. Think scarves, boots and jewellery too.

Bring them along on the swap day at 6 pm, enjoy complimentary nibbles and drinks and either go explore the local dinner/market locales, or hang around and browse/socialise while we sort.

Swapping begins at 7.30 pm. We ask that you swap gracefully and generously. Adjudication will be provided if required.

If you need some inspiration, listen to this for some clothes swap wisdom http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/lifematters/clothes-swap/8105802

All sizes, colours and styles are welcomed and wanted.

Any clothing remaining at the end of the swap will be donated to women's services.

Tickets for entry is $10, book your tickets today …. Limited spaces.

The Adelaide Sustainability Centre is supported by the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resource Management Board and Conservation Council of SA.

 

Extra Info:

Accepted items include clothing and accessories - womens clothing only. We will not be swapping childrens clothing at this event. Please bring quality items only (functional, unbroken and in good condition).

Items can be delivered prior to the event. Please contact the Adelaide Sustainability Centre on (08) 7123 2166 or email diane.salvi@conservationsa.org.au to make arrangements.
