Forum Speaker
David Meiklejohn has worked as a behaviour change specialist both within government and as a consultant for the past 20 years, developing and delivering programs in Australia and the UK.
He is researching Australian local governments that have responded to climate change, with innovative solutions that reduce emissions and have the capacity to scale-up quickly.
In this talk, he will present examples of local government action from both Australia and internationally that we need more of, in order to effectively address climate change.
The first half of this forum will be speaker presentation and questions; the second half will be groups based on Council wards, with Candidates and residents.
Lighter Footprints, is a group of concerned residents from Boroondara who came together in 2006 to see what we could do about the serious challenge of climate change.
