Set up from 12.30pm, event from 1pm – 4.30pm with a half-hour break for networking.
We are hoping to make it a larger than usual event which helps build our capacity for climate emergency campaigning.
So please save the date and start inviting people who might be interested.
A draft agenda is below. Suggested changes contact Jane Morton, Darebin Climate Action Now
Afternoon tea in the kiosk (rather than bringing our own) as a way of supporting the kiosk proprietors
