climate impacts rally - belgrave 5 may

The Dandenong Ranges Climate Impacts Rally (350.org) is part of an international event run by 350.org.

Where: Ranges Community Health Centre, 1624 Burwood Hwy, Belgrave
When: Saturday 5 May from 10am to 11am
Theme: Bushfires, a growing impact of climate change
BYO: placards

This will be one of many events across the globe to focus public attention on the many impacts that climate change is already having on people, animals and ecosystems. The event is intended to highlight that climate change will increase the incidence of extreme and catastrophic wildfire weather days (as predicted by the IPCC).

In 2009 I was pleased to be able to support a local 350.org event by providing 350 indigenous plants to hand out to passer bys.

Increased public awareness of climate impacts is critical to decisive action on climate change.

In 2009 over 100 people came out to support the 350.org event in Belgrave. It was a great show of local support to see action on climate change.

Organisers are keen to spread the word on this rally, please pass on details to your networks.

For more details you can email pcook@wildcoast.net.au or click here, visit the 350.org website, go to local website DRREA and join the event on facebook.
