Right across Gippsland, community members have been reaching out to local businesses, community groups, schools, sporting clubs and other groups – asking them to sign onto the open letter for faster and fairer Victorian climate action.
To demonstrate the momentum that’s building locally in support of climate action and a transition plan for workers and their families, we will be riding bikes and e-scooters from the Loy Yang lookout to Victory park, where we will finish our ride and present our open letter to candidates who have been invited from both the Gippsland and Monash electorates.
We are asking everyone to come and join us on SATURDAY 7th MAY to celebrate the diverse and growing community who believe that the future of our region can be bright, and that Gippsland can be at the forefront of climate solutions like renewable energy, sustainable agriculture and industrial innovation.
