Brunswick Climate Fair postponed due to CoronaVirus

Wilson Street, Brunswick – Climate Fair location


Climate Fair event on Saturday postponed due to rapid escalation of the Coronavirus CorVid-19 public health response.

Climate organisations in Moreland have been working to organise a climate fair to be held at Wilson Avenue in Brunswick on Saturday 14 March, with the assistance and co-operation of state Greens MP Tim Read.

With the cancellation of the Grand Prix in Melbourne this weekend, it is clear that major gatherings of people poses a major public health commumnity transmission risk. Social distancing needs to be employed to reduce level of virus transmission.

“While the Fair would likely be safer than a tram or a classroom, Perceptions matter in campaigning.”
