Ryde Gladesville Climate Change Action Group

About

We are a group of local residents who came together in 2007 to regain our pride at living in John Howard’s seat of Bennelong. We have over 350 supporters who receive regular e newsletters from us. We are active in lobbying and raising awareness about climate change. We recently organised a bulk solar purchase.

Climate change is a serious issue but we don’t have to be serious all the time. We believe in actions that are fun and entertaining as well as raising awareness. We took a string quartet to play outside John Howard’s office to lament the passing of the planet while he fiddled. We wheel-barrowed a pile of fruit trees through Eastwood Mall for Maxine McKew to plant in her garden because under Labor policy, we need to prepare for the day when our farms can no longer feed us. We played a giant game of snakes and ladders outside her office this year to join in the spirit of Labor’s playing around with fixing the climate.

  • Aims:
    • Make government leaders aware of the desire for decisive action.
    • Inform community members about actions they can take.
    • Undertake local community-based projects to address climate change.
  • We are a small core who meet regualarly with over 300 other people in the area who have signed on as supporters and who receive a regular e newsletter. In 2007 we were active in lobbying and drawing attention to our local Federal candidates in the seat of Bennelong. We took a string quartet to play outside John Howard’s office to lament the passing of the planet while he fiddled. We took Maxine McKew some fruit trees to plant in her garden to remind her that under Labor policy she would still need to prepare for the day when our farms can no longer feed the city. This year we have continued to pressure local leaders and raise awareness in the community..
