Earth Relay

Leading up to 31 October, communities across Victoria and other states of Australia will be passing a human sized earth globe from suburb to suburb and town to town until it reaches Canberra. This is the Earth Relay.  The hope is that the relay will generate media and community attention along its passage to parliament and the Earth Dome will act as a symbol of hope and optimism for a cleaner, safer world.

 Climate Action Moreland will host a leg of the Earth Relay on Saturday 8 October from 11.30 am to 12.30 pm outside the Mechanics Institute, corner of Glenlyon Road and Sydney Road, Brunswick.  Present will be the earth Globe. Please show your support and join the celebration.

Members of Climate Action Moreland will be sending a message about how we think the carbon price can be improved, particularly increasing the 5% target.

Once the legislation is passed, the Earth Dome will be packed up and shipped to Durban for the international climate change negotiations, and with it will go our pride that finally Australia is acting on climate change and our hope that this will help deliver progress on climate change on the international stage.

You can see the Earth Dome here:

This is the current C02 in our atmosphere. We need to get it below 350 for a safe climate.
