Collective action on the climate emergency is urgent, and in Latrobe Valley we face climate threats of drought, heat waves and bushfire. But everyone will agree that we are in transition from coal fired power to renewables. Our economic future is uncertain as many jobs have historically been aligned to the coal industry. The Climate Action Collective shared meal was a great starting point to talk about specific approaches to changing community attitudes and expectations. Thank you everyone, and look forward to the next one. Lorraine Bull, Latrobe Valley Sustainability Group

Another inspiring occasion at the great VRI. Lovely community provided dinner with pot luck and encouraging conversation on what we're doing about our future. I look forward to the next one
