CCBR recognised at 2018 NSW Environment Awards 

 

NATURE CONSERVATION COUNCIL MEMBER GROUP AWARD

For a group that has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to and success in conservation.

Climate Change Balmain Rozelle

The citation reads:-

Climate Change Balmain Rozelle is a vibrant climate group with lots of energy.

The group was initially nurtured by NCC and began meeting regularly and having a presence at local shopping precincts and markets. In early 2006, five members of the original working party decided to focus their energies on a single key issue and so formed a new, non-partisan group.

 

Some of their achievements in 2017-18 are

 

  • keeping climate relevant locally with Climate in the Pub events six times a year on topics as diverse as fracking, energy efficiency and legal actions on climate change;
  • mobilisation and support for #Time2Choose and other rallies; initiating the
  • Get on to Gladys/Let Luke Know letter campaign about climate policy;
  • representations to Federal MP Anthony Albanese about his position on Adani and new coal;
  • encouraging members to write letters to Sydney and local newspapers;
  • producing and distributing election summaries (council and Bennelong by-elections) comparing candidates' climate policies;
  • increasing visibility in the area with leafleting, petition-gathering, etc., at local farmers' markets;
  • issuing regular e-newsletters to a list of 1,000, with a diary of upcoming events as well as news and analysis on a selection of issues each month;
  • and working with the Australian Conservation Foundation to reach the target of One Million Conversations about climate.

#STOPADANI letters to Albo

We collected over 600 letters to local MP Anthony Albanese, listing our objections to the proposed Adani coal mine in N Queensland, and asking that he and Labor clearly state their opposition to the mine. This video shows how we delivered the letters in person.
