A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden
Event:
Climate change is a very topical and interesting subject
CLIMATE CHANGE
Many of us have vastly differing opinions on this subject. I always find it a fascinating one and it is interesting to hear other people's points of view!

However, trying to make a difference as just one individual, particularly with an issue as overwhelming as climate change, can often feel both daunting and futile. But you could feel empowered when you truly understand how everyone has a role to play in this invigorating forum.



This event will feature two very passionate climate warriors - trained campaigner and author, Anna Rose and Joseph Zane Sikulu, 350.org's Pacific Campaigner. They will discuss their front-line experiences in "climate change advocacy, community engagement and government action". If you have any questions, do bring them along to this forum as there will be a Q & A after the talk.
