Rachel reports on a great day at The Entrance
Picnic Point at The Entrance, NSW was the perfect setting for our ‘Moving Planet’ day. With more than 2000 events in 175 countries around the world, Moving Planet is about demanding clean energy for a fossil fuel free future.
A gathering of more than a hundred people came together at The Entrance to call for action on climate change and more sustainable transport options for the central coast. The crowd listened to local GP, Dr Ian Charlton who described the health benefits of public transport. He described a plan for how the Central Coast could be better served with a network of buses circling the major waterways.
Undaunted by the weather and entertained by local musician and activist Jake Cassar, the gathering formed a large circle on the nearby oval, joining hands and dancing in a circle to show that we can play a part in taking action.
We call on our local, state and federal governments to move towards a sustainable, clean energy future. Too long have we waited for urgent action on climate change, lets get Moving for the Planet’s future.
Lots of Thanks to everyone from Climate Future (of CEN) and the Australian Youth Climate Coalition and all our friends who helped get this day on the road.
