Lighter Footprints works hard to facilitate strong action to ensure a safe climate future, through advocacy, community engagement, but particularly through arranging large events and offering a range of exciting speakers on clean energy, sustainability and climate action at our monthly meetings.
Our forests are under threat. They host a wealth of biodiversity, harvest water and form a natural buffer against climate change. Fortunately dedicated community organisations are taking up the fight. Recent victories in the courts have given hope but there is still much more to do.
This event will introduce you to the people who actually took the battle to VicForests in the courts and saved 66 logging coupes, and the endangered species they contain, from destruction. But you will hear how VicForests is now challenging the ruling. You will also hear about the Bob Brown Foundation's recently launched Great Forest Case and the implications for all of Australia's forests.
