Wednesday, April 27, 2022 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Location: Hawthorn Arts Centre, 360 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn VIC 3122

This event is now fully booked. It can be viewed on facebook live on the Lighter Footprints facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LighterFootprintsMelbourne. Where do the Kooyong electorate candidates stand on climate? What is their vision for Australia's transition to a clean energy economy and the protection of the planet for future generations? Join us at the Hawthorn Arts Centre on Wednesday 27th April, at 7:00pm for a 7.30 start. Listen to the candidates, ask them questions and inform your vote!

Too often our candidates are no more than faceless names on a ballot paper. This forum offers the opportunity for you to get a sense of the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates and their climate policies. There is nothing quite like seeing them on stage answering the hard questions.

The forum will be moderated by Victoria McKenzie-McHarg, seasoned climate campaigner and Strategic Director at Women’s Environmental Leadership Australia. Candidates Dr. Peter Lynch (Labor), Piers Mitchem (Greens) and Dr. Monique Ryan (Independent) have accepted our invitation. Josh Frydenberg (Liberal) has declined our invitation which remains open.
