June Green Drinks - Our Future vision

Geelong Sustainability's monthly social networking event – Geelong Green Drinks – is a great way to learn about what's new and happening in our region and to connect with others working in the sustainability sector.


June Green Drinks focuses on the bigger picture

This month’s June Green drinks gives us a great opportunity to hear from City of Greater Geelong’s Simone Boer and Emily Kane on where our city is with its 30 year vision Our Future 

Simone Boer and Emily Kane will give a brief update on the project including an overview of the ‘Clever and Creative’ vision for Greater Geelong. What does ‘Clever and Creative’ mean, and which are the other key themes that the community identified during the engagement process that will be included in the vision document? 
Hear what is going to happen next: the upcoming release of the vision document, and the ongoing opportunities for Geelong Sustainability to assist with bringing the vision to life.

Following that idea-stimulation, we’re going to engage in a facilitated idea-generation session where you all can contribute your ideas on where Geelong Sustainability can make its best contribution. 

Already Geelong Sustainability has shown local leadership in working towards creating the city’s first Community Owned Renewable Energy projects. As it expands, it will raise the consciousness of people all through our community. As well as its expanding contribution to the real reduction of CO2 generation, it will prompt Geelong residents to examine better ways to use energy. We know CO2 reduction is an important and urgent priority but it is only the start on our way to building the changes we need for our society to live sustainably. Geelong Sustainability members have the talents and most importantly the passion to create the framework for our sustainable future.
Look forward to seeing you all at Beav’s Bar next Wednesday 21 June from 17:30 onwards. Bring your inquisitive minds and be prepared to have your ideas stimulated!
