About MCN

"Climate change is a critical issue that cuts across all the different aspects of society and even if everyone only does something small to help, we can together make a considerable difference.

Representatives of different community groups, Landcare groups, outdoor education, Berry Street, the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authorities, the Murrindindi Shire, local businesses and other institutions got together last Sunday [March 25th, 2007] at the Molesworth hall to brainstorm ideas on how the community could get involved to address climate change issues. At the end of the day, participants agreed to the formation of a Murrindindi Climate Network.

Organised by Murrindindi Roots and Shoots and Acheron Valley Watch, the Murrindindi Climate Network was arranged in the belief that there are many strategies that can be undertaken to reduce the impact of human activity on the environment, but this requires the support and coordination of many stakeholders under the umbrella of a united network.

The new Murrindindi Climate Network believes that, by working co-operatively, they will have a much stronger voice and greater influence to move Murrindindi towards a more sustainable future."
