ENVIRONMENT Victoria has opened a new hub in Frankston to promote discussion of the environment.
Community organiser Jane Stabb said the aim was to raise the profile of the environment in the lead up to the November 29 state election.
Ms Stabb said Environment Victoria also wanted to hear what green issues locals wanted raised with politicians.
Frankston’s Jan Fisher, who is volunteering at the hub, said she wanted to see politicians do more to protect the environment.
“They don’t have an ear to the environment enough,” she said.
Environment Victoria CEO Mark Wakeham said Frankston residents wanted lower power bills and more investment in clean energy jobs and training.
“Environment policies will be key to the outcome of the November election,” he said.
The hub is located at 8/14 Wells St, Frankston and is open to members of the public.
