Join the Global Climate Strike in Newcastle

12 - 3pm Friday 20 Sept

Civic Park Newcastle

People around the world standing up to confront the climate crisis when our politicians won’t.
Australia is already on the frontlines of the climate crisis. Prolonged drought. Flash flooding. Catastrophic bushfires, severe cyclones and heatwaves. But just at the time when we need to ramp up climate solutions, we have elected a Government that wants to open the floodgates to new coal, oil and gas projects that put all of us at risk.

So, on September 20, three days before the UN Emergency Climate Summit, school students are inviting everyone to
join us for our biggest ever global #ClimateStrike.
Everyone is invited, everyone is needed. On March 15, 1.6 million of us went on strike around the world.
On September 20, we’re going to take our movement to the next level.
If you’re an adult, please take the day off and invite your friends, workmates and families to join us.

CURRENT PROJECTS

2nd local Newcastle club to benefit from CAN's support & expertise.

After the amazing success of the Carrington Bowlo Goes Solar project, CAN is at it again with the Croatian Wickham Goes Solar project.
This is the 2nd in a line of support based initiatives to help local struggling clubs to reduce their energy bills and help the planet.

Over the next 12 months, the club, with support from CAN, will hold fund raising events and run an online crowdfunding campaign to raise money to help install a solar system on the club’s roof.

NEWS

A report on the state of New Zealand’s environment has painted a bleak picture of catastrophic biodiversity loss, polluted waterways and the destructive rise of the dairy industry and urban sprawl.
Environment Aotearoa is the first major environmental report in four years, and was compiled using data from Statistics New Zealand and the environment ministry.
It presents a sobering summary of a country that is starkly different from the pristine landscape promoted in the “Pure New Zealand” marketing campaign that lures millions of tourists every year.

ISSUES

One word in lots of Australians minds at the moment is Adani.
Who & what is Adani.
The new coal mine proposed by Adani to be built or should we say dug, is going to become one of the globes single destructive projects of the 21st century.
