AUGUST is ACTION!

Time is flying by, July is behind us and August is here! This month will bring more discussion, more media hype and more political banter about climate change. For YCAN! August will bring action.

We all need to stand up and be counted. Now is the time to let our voices be heard. The federal election is looming and we still do not have a candidate that understands what everyone else in the country does – we need real carbon reductions NOW! That is, we need to go to zero emissions as soon as possible – not 60 years down the track.

August is for Action, what will you do??

Check out http://www.myfootprint.org/ and calculate your carbon footprint on our planet. Learn and then take charge of your situation.

Write or even telephone your/our local federal MP and ask them what they’re doing about climate change. Let them know we want immediate action on the issue.

We all have choices and decisions to make. Climate change is a complex issue, but if we all start by looking at ourselves we can make a difference. As the saying goes, ‘Think Globally and Act Locally’

We have a chance RIGHT NOW!!!!

YCAN! is having its regular monthly meeting next Wednesday evening. Please come along and play a part in getting our community to a zero emission one! All are welcome to attend and join in projects and activities.

Wednesday 8th August
6:30pm – 7:30pm

Please contact me if you have any questions or queries regarding YCAN! or the meeting.

So I throw you the challenge, make a change in your life this month. Start down the path of a sustainable future.
