Effective local climate action
Lighter Footprints is a local climate group committed to leading effective climate action.
As a community based organisation working across Melbourne’s inner-east, we aim to educate, advocate and bring people together. We inform the community, create the momentum for change and influence Australian decision makers to take the action necessary to halt global warming as a matter of urgency.
Support Electrify Boroondara
Care about lower energy bills and getting off gas? Lighter Footprints is backing the community-wide Electrify Boroondara project, supporting the move to cleaner, safer, all electric homes. Find out more or join our working group here.
Victorian gas information
Gas is a fossil fuel that impacts our health and climate. Victoria has announced that new homes will not need mandatory gas connections from next year, but there is no clear timetable to transition to cleaner, safer electric homes. Find out more here.
We're looking forward to ending the year in traditional Lighter Footprints fashion with a BBQ at the Guide Hall.
It's time to celebrate our wins, enjoy a laugh, some good cheer and great company. Please bring your own BBQ fare and drink plus a salad, bread or desert to share.
Worldwide the transition to clean energy economies is underway. The United States has played a significant trump card with its massive investment (AU$520 billion) in renewable energy, electrification and clean industries under the Inflation Reduction Act.
Will Australia fall behind in the race for investment, resources and expertise to execute the transition? What are our advantages and how can we exploit them? Where are the road blocks and where do our fossil fuel exports fit into the equation?
