Bayside Climate Change Action Group

About

  • Bayside Climate Change Action Group (BCCAG) was formed by parents in the Bayside area who are concerned about the environmental future that they and their children will face as a result of climate change. As a non-political group, the goals of the group are to provide a collective voice for Bayside residents for both families and individuals determined to fight for a clean energy future, and to let their existing attitudes toward greenhouse issues and concerns be heard by environmental groups, and government bodies at the local, state and federal level to ensure that Australia is meeting the challenge of climate change. The BCCAG is a community network, and will work to distribute information on these issues and to ensure the public has a thorough understanding of greenhouse gas emissions, and its causes. Education of the public about climate change and individual actions can make a difference with government lobbying, supporting the idea of ‘policy change, not climate change!’ The BCCAG is run by volunteers within the group who have experience working with community and volunteer groups. Involvement with the BCCAG can be at various levels, ranging from leadership roles, occasional attendance at meetings, to just wanting to be kept up to date on upcoming events and issues. The BCCAG will work toward effectively communicating its message to the Bayside community about its intentions and progress, with all suggestions and input considered by the coordinator

We cover the Bayside City Council Area – Brighton, Hampton, Sandringham, Black Rock, Beaumaris, and neighbouring areas. We have about 75 paid member / families. We have an email list of 450. We tackle things which might have international, national, and local impacts.

    I have been looking through all the action group sites and see that there have hardly been any comments. I thing it would be good to start a conversation on climate change with a discussion about the whole question of sustainability; after all Climate Change is only one symptom. By starting a discussion at this level you can examine a whole range of topics and this could lead to areas on common interest and potential community action.

    The comments should be about taking action. There is already too much talk. HOw do you start a group in a small town that that refuses to acknowledge the environment as significant?
