Want to hear what Yarra is doing to improve local waste collection and recycling?
Sophie Green from City of Yarra will present a free YCAN community webinar.
Wednesday 28 October at 7.00pm for about an hour with Q&A to follow.
Register Online at Eventbrite. All welcome!
Find out how candidates in the three Yarra Council wards responded to the
YCAN six question survey.
We asked candidates questions about getting off gas, decarbonising electricity,
active transport and other climate-related topics.
As the Yarra Council elections approach, YCAN has sent a survey to all candidates.
Ballot papers will be mailed out between October 6 and 8 with voting (via postal vote only) closing on 6.00pm on Friday 23 October. That means your vote must be in the post by this date and time.
Find out more from the VEC website where you can also find a list of all the Yarra Candidates with contact details and statements from each.
We will publish the candidates responses in our next newsletter in the second week
Since we can’t gather in the streets and wave our banner like we did last year in support of the School Strike 4 Climate, we did the only thing we could – gather on Zoom. And as the theme of this global action is Fund Our Future, Not Coal we decided to invite Scotty from Gas Marketing to our protest. Just to let him know what we think of his latest gas promotion.
Make your own SS4C (digital) protest and support the students here.
Webinars 5 and 6: The State of Waste
YCAN is excited to present a two-part mini-series The State of Waste which will focus on waste, recycling and the circular economy.
The State of Waste will take a deep dive into all things waste-related from both a Victorian and a local perspective. We know that many members of the community are deeply invested in reducing their waste footprints and these webinars will provide you with an opportunity to ask our experts all of those niggling questions about waste and recycling that we know many of you have.
