In the lead up to the Camp for Climate Action in Collie there was several public forums, training opportunities and fundraisers. They were:
Life and Jobs in WA after coal: A public forum
What: An open public forum about Coal in WA, the alternatives and how to get there!
Where: Woolnough Lecture Theatre Geology and Geography, UWA
When: November 25th 2009 6-8pm
Who: Anyone interested to hear about and discuss energy in WA and social change
Climate Camp recognises that the economy and jobs of Collie are dependent on the coal industry. We would like to invite the residents of Collie to be part of the constructive discussion about a just transition from a coal-based economy to a sustainable clean energy future. We will be holding a public meetings in Collie on Sunday November 29 at the Margaretta Wilson Center, 99 Forrest Street Collie, 3-5pm and during Climate Camp December 17-21 to listen to what Collie residents have to say. We believe Collie can benefit from the switch to clean renewable energy without threatening the jobs of Collie workers or the stability of Collie community. Sustainable energy jobs are cleaner and safer than coal. A suite of renewable energy — including solar, wind, geothermal and wave sources — can easily produce all of WA’s energy needs, without exposing workers to daily contact with toxic materials, and without threatening global warming which affects all life on the planet.
