Local environmental sustainability champions, Melbourne Girls College, will offer a free community event inviting people to ‘Rewrite the Future’ at the College on Saturday 1st September 2012.
The forum, held annually since 2010, features expert speakers on global challenges such as climate change and involves a cafe conversations style workshop for people to discuss the issue and share their priorities for action. The September forum ‘Global Challenges: Local Solutions’ will feature climate scientists (Professor David Karoly), climate campaigners (AYCC founder Anna Rose) and climate superheroes!
Melbourne Girls College sustainability coordinator and science teacher Andrew Vance said the event has proved very popular with the local community. “People love the opportunity to engage with experts in their local community about how we can develop local solutions to global challenges. There’s a chance to meet other people who are involved in inspiring projects and to visit the local solutions expo.”
The event will feature live music, prizes will be awarded for environmental pledges, and there is an opportunity to be involved in a community tree planting event.
Local organisations wishing to participate in the ‘local solutions gallery’ should contact Andrew Vance on 0438 201 725.
Delicious food and beverages will be available from the famous caterers at MGC Parents’ Association with some proceeds going to a MGC charity project.
