First of all on this Monday 10th August at 8.30pm on ABC 4Corners is Plastic Wars: Recycling spin in the plastics industry, a PBS Frontline production presented by Craig Reucassel.
You will remember Craig Reucassel from his ‘War on Waste’ series.
Craig will also be presenting a new three part series titled ‘Fight for Planet A:Our Climate Challenge’, which begins on Tuesday 11th August at 8:30pm.
Fight for Planet A: Our Climate Challenge
The ABC's new show to inspire our thinking and challenge our behaviour on climate change, Fight for Planet A: Our Climate Challenge premieres on August 11th at 8.30pm. Over three episodes Craig Reucassel takes on a climate challenge to reduce our carbon emissions and understand where our energy comes from, how transport and travel emissions affect our health and just what is the carbon footprint of the things we eat?
The series will showcase how individuals, families, schools and businesses can help reduce our carbon footprint by making practical day-to-day changes, especially in our homes. Far from taking the pressure off governments and industry, Craig will check in to see if they are doing all they can to make the changes we need and challenge them to do better.
I would encourage you to watch this series as I believe it will be very informative and could provide all of us with ideas to reduce our carbon emissions.
If the series motivates you to get involved in solutions to reduce our carbon emissions there is an online personalised plan which will provide you with useful tips, tools and advice, https://fightforplaneta.abc.net.au/solutionsplan.
This series will be the major focus of our discussions at our Sustainability Zoom meetings.
In relation to our Zoom meetings I thought we might have had a few more participants. Many group members contributed to our discussions when we were able to physically meet and I think many of you could also contribute to our discussions via Zoom. The few who have participated have enjoyed the discussions.
The technology may sound a little ‘scary’ but in fact it is relatively simple once you join your first group.
While Zoom meetings are not the same as face-to-face meetings they can at least break the monotony of isolation at home.
I have attached the guide sheet for joining a Zoom meeting which should help those who are unfamiliar with Zoom and may feel a little reluctant.
Can I encourage you again to watch this important series and I look forward to seeing a few more people joining our Zoom meetings.
Stay healthy and stay safe.
