Key Strategies

These are the Key Strategies of Lighter Footprints.

1. Analyse opportunities and set clear priorities from our lists of projects.
  • Communicate them to our 'supporters'.
  • Research which groups are 'leading edge' in priority areas and join with them.
2. Contribute to the development of the coalition of climate groups ("convergence") in Victoria and then Australia.

3. Compile a skills inventory and consider which supplementary resources are needed and how to access them.

4. Use action plans to control projects and drive implementation.

5. Develop an extensive database.
  • Distribute a monthly LF e-newsletter.
  • Mount an active, attractive website.

  1. I was sent a link to your website and the outcome of the meeting on July 28th. I hadn't come across your group and I just wanted to congratulate you on coming together and organising the way you have.

    Your aim for everybody to "do" something is one that I support. Earlier this year I opened a sustainable restaurant called "SlowDown" in St Kilda, which combines a number of areas of sustainability with strong environmental practices.

    Education and local action must be the way to go, with such weak leaderhip in our political parties and the required national paradigm change unlikely to occur within the short to medium term.

    Anyway, congratulations on your work, the support you have gained and I hope to come to one of your meetings soon.
