Presentation: Toowoomba - Zero Carbon emissions in 10 Years! What's possible?
The Alternative Technology Association, Toowoomba Branch, is hosting a presentation to give Toowoomba residents the chance to hear about Beyond Zero Emissions and Zero Emissions Byron. The speakers are Craig Banks from Beyond Zero Emissions and Gerard Wedderburn-Bisshop, a member of two of the working groups of Zero Emissions Byron.
The not for profit organisation Beyond Zero Emissions has plans to make Australia carbon neutral within ten years. They include plans for stationary energy generation, as well as plans for buildings, land use and a high speed rail network.
Byron Shire aims to be Australia's first zero emissions community. Zero Emissions Byron is a Byron Shire community initiative supported by Byron Shire Council and Beyond Zero Emissions, to take energy, waste, transport, buildings and land use to zero emissions within 10 years. Several other shires are showing a close interest. Are there lessons in this for the Toowoomba Community?
BZE plans for Australia's low carbon future will be available for purchase.
We look forward to seeing you there,
ATA Toowoomba Branch Convenor, 0419 736 219, [email protected]
