Election 2013: Wills candidate community forum on climate and sustainability

For the 2013 Federal Election, come and hear what the candidates have to say about policies, particularly on climate change and sustainability. The Following Wills Candidates have agreed to attend:

  • Dean O’CALLAGHAN, (Save the Planet)
  • Kelvin THOMSON, (Australian Labor Party)
  • Margarita WINDISCH, (Socialist Alliance)
  • Tim READ, (Greens)

We are hoping that the other candidates: Shilpa Hegde for the Liberal Party and Adrian Trajstman for the Australian Sex Party, and any other candidate that registers for the poll in Wills, will also come along to highlight their climate and sustainability policies.

When: 7.00pm for 7.30pm start, 19th August
Where: Coburg Concert Hall, Moreland Civic Centre, 90 Bell Street, Coburg
Facebook: register for this event on Facebook

This is a family friendly event. Gold coin donation. Further information: sallyRose m. 0431 445 930

We are also sending a questionnaire to each candidate on climate and sustainability issues, and hope to publish their considered responses on our website, as a guide to residents who can’t make the public forum.

Climate Action Moreland has organised this event but is supported by other community groups around Moreland including: Moreland Bicycle Users Group (BUG), Brunswick Residents Network, CERES, Sustainable Fawkner, Friends of Upfield Linear Park

You may wish to compare the policies of the major parties ahead of time from the Vote Climate website or check out the Climate Institute 2013 election pollute-o-meter.
