Adrian and Bryony running for local council

Adrian and Bryony are running for their local council Darebin, in an effort to bring the issue of the current climate emergency onto the local government agenda.

With the failure of State and Federal governments to respond to the climate emergency local government can play a critical role in both reversing global warming and mitigating the impacts.

Actions include:

  • Saving lives by
    • Reducing the heat island effect by planting more shade trees and reducing deaths during future heat waves
    • Planting fire supressing trees (oaks, poplar etc) rather than fire promoting trees (gums, pines) in councils with peri urban interfaces
  • Reducing current and future food stress by encouraging local and community food growing
  • Supporting renewable energy and energy efficiency locally, including supporting amongst the disadvantaged.
  • Drawing down past emissions by turning green and food waste into biochar
