Two of our newer members were asked why they had become interested in and so highly value a sustainable environment. A love of nature developed during childhood featured in their responses—a common theme amongst our members. Group members were also asked how they felt their grandchildren were responding to climate change, whether they appear to be depressed or worried about it, resulting in an interesting discussion.
Did you know that BSFG’s action group ‘Renewable Energy Benalla’, is ‘for Benalla to become a zero net energy town by 2028 by reducing and balancing energy demand with 100% renewable energy supply’. It is approaching its mission from three angles – ‘Reducing 1/3’, ‘Replacing 1/3’ and ‘Switching 1/3’. You can find out more at the new Renewable Energy Benalla website https://reb.org.au
