Saturday 6th December
City Walk (near the fountain at the front of the Canberra Centre)
Another drop-in to my intray. Last time I went to one of these, I was stunned at the number of cars!
- The Walk Against Warming kick-off events in Sydney and Melbourne attracted huge crowds attempting to influence the Australian delegation heading off to Poland for the next round of international negotiations. It’s up to us to keep up the momentum!!
On December 6th, the international day of action, come out and show your support for strong, immediate action on climate change. Listen to a couple of great speakers, march around the city in a crowd of people, including performers, and listen to the fantastic sounds of local Canberra musicians, joining with people all over the country and the world determined to see action on climate change Saturday 6th December 11.30am City Walk (near the fountain at the front of the Canberra Centre)
* Light Rail for Canberra
* A Renewable Energy future
* Strong Commitments at Poznan for deep cuts in emissions
If you have a first aid certificate and want a guaranteed shady spot to sit during the speakers and music, please get in touch – we need another volunteer in our first aid tent.
The Walk costs a lot to run, but it is a very important event, as well as being fun, so we want to keep doing it! You can help out by being a bucket collector on the day. It just involves going through the crowd with a donations bucket, and people are happy to support what you’re doing.
We’re required by Roads ACT to have temporary traffic marshals in some spots on the Walk. You’ll get to wear a flouro vest as well as the satisfaction of controlling traffic.
On the three days before the Walk, we need people to hand out fliers in Garema place at lunchtime. This is not a difficult or time-consuming job, but it is very important to let people know that the Walk is coming up – soon! If you can spend part of your lunchtime on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday let me know
Helpers to set up & pack down.
It’s always great to have a couple of people help out with the set up and pack down. If you can be there early, or don’t mind staying on to help pack up, we’d really appreciate it.
Please contact Genevieve at campaign(@)consact.org.au or 6229 6208, or Robyn: communications(@)consact.org.au if you can do any of the above.
Volunteers for the Walk Against Warming will have lunch on the day on us
And if you haven’t yet promoted the walk to your email lists, networks, friends, relatives, work-mates and grandparents – do it now!
