Raising climate issues at Glenroy Festival

Today we were at the Glenroy Festival with a stall in conjunction with Neighbours United for Climate Action, Newlands Friends of the Forest, and The Climate Action Game.

Beautiful sunny day. Just as well, as we didn’t have the 30kg weights per leg to put up our stall marquee.

We talked to a lot people highlighting the Climate Carnival event (FB) on May 6-7 in Brunswick East, and the next session of the Adaptation Game to be held at CERES on June 18.

We had the seven figures from the latest IPCC climate Report Summary for Policymakers as A2 posters people could look at.

Also information on the environmental and health impacts of Synthetic turf, and Melbourne Airport 3rd Runway expansion.

Spoke to a few people about the National Electric Vehicle Strategy as an Important start, but the absence in this of anything encouraging public transport, cycling and walking in urban areas. Nothing on e-bIkes in this strategy which is extremely disappointing.

Broadmeadows MP Kathleen Matthews-Ward MP and Merribek Mayor Mayor Angelica Panopoulos both visited our stall for a catch-up chat.

There were also some emu puppets strutting around the festival keeping everyone entertained. Lots of food vans and entertainment. It was very busy for most of the 3 hours during the afternoon.

Thanks to John, Andrea, Nerida for setup. Hayley for bringing the Climate Adaptation Game as one of the game designers and explaining the details to people.

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